Hi, about 2 years ago i suffered an accident at work,i fell backwards on basement stair,hit my right temple on the steps and slid uncounciously to the basement,as a result my right eye was swollen and red for a month,my vision was blurred, 20/40. now after two years the vision is back to 20/20, but,the eye lid is shut while the other one is open, the doctor gave me a final report stating that he does not think it is related to the accident, where do I go now, can anyone help?

  • Have you seen an opthamologist (eye surgeon/specialist)?

  • It sounds like you tore the insertion of the "levaor palpebrae" muscle (muscle that raises the eyelid) (when you fell).See an opthalmologist, maybe a specialist in ophthalmic plastic sugery.
