Eye after tennis ball injuryBlunt force eye injuries (such as tennis ball injuries) can affect the entire eye. Because the eye is a closed organ, any sudden impact can cause shock wave effects through the eye. In this case, the shock wave from a tennis ball caused a hemorrhage in the retina and underlying layers.

If you or some you know has questions about eye diseases, problems or conditions please call your local optometrist to schedule an appointment. If specialty care, treatment or surgery is required, please ask to be referred to one of the physicians at Eyecare Medical Group.

What Our Patients Are Saying

My experience at EMG was one of the best. The staff was friendly and informative. I felt very comfortable with the entire experience. All my questions were answered and explained.

I have been visiting Dr. Samuel Solish here and I've found the staff attentive, the waiting times were short, and the treatment was first rate. The examinations were thorough and the explanations were easy to understand, and they never hurried me. And as an added bonus, it's near the Portland Transportation Center, so I can travel most of the way via a bus.
