With it being baseball season I often wonder what happens if you get hit in the eye with the ball? Will it blind you? Does your eyeball get damaged? Well according to Troy Bedinghaus, O.D.,  if you get hit hard in the eye, chances are your eyeball will be unharmed. The real damage will probably be to the eye socket.

An orbital blowout fracture is a fracture or break in the small bones that make up your eye. The orbit, or eye socket, is the cavity of the skull that holds the eye. An orbital blowout sometimes occurs when an object strikes the orbit with blunt force.
