  • Physical assault, violence
  • Falling into a sharp, pointed object
  • Auto accidents in which glass gets in the eye
  • Birth injuries
  • Medical mistakes
  • Burn injuries
  • Explosions

Symptoms Of Eye Injuries

The symptoms of an eye injury will vary, depending on the severity and type of injury. Symptoms may include:

  • Burning sensation in the eye
  • Redness in the whites of the eyes
  • Swollen eyelids
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Feeling like something is in the eye
  • Blurred, double vision
  • Decreased vision

Ear Injuries

Injuries to the ear are also serious and can dramatically affect a person’s quality of life. Ear injuries can occur in motor vehicle accidents and other incidents involving trauma to the head. Injuries to the ear are often accompanied by other injuries, including:
