Common Eye Injuries
Most eye injuries are caused by intense impact to the facial area including the following:
Hearing loss – this is one of the most common complications felt during an ear injury. There are two types of hearing loss – conductive and sensor neural. Conductive hearing loss affects the external and middle ear while sensor neural hearing loss affects the inner ear.
BPPV – this occurs when the otoconia in our ears is dislodged, causing ear rocks or ear crystals to form in our brains. The symptoms of BPPV include vertigo, dizzy spells, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, loss of balance and lightheadedness. These symptoms usually occur in episodes, lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes.
Tinnitus – this is a constant ringing or other sound in our ears that usually occurs after a dramatic impact or after an explosion. This constant ringing can make it impossible to focus on daily tasks such as driving, working, reading and even talking.
