A member asked:

Is it okay to smoke cigarettes if hyphema?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Ideally No.: Smoking, although not directly related to a hyphema, can impair wound healing and cause red blood cells to be deprived of oxygen. In patients with sickle cell disease, who are susceptible to blood oxygen levels, smoking is harmful.
