Specializes in Ophthalmology

The conjunctiva (membrane around the white of eye) contains small lacy blood vessels that can break when rubbed or when severely irritated by inflammation, infection or trauma. Sometimes increased blood pressure, or sneezing, forceful coughing, straining, heavy lifting may rupture the vessels. Blood thinners (aspirin, Advil, (ibuprofen) fish oil, Coumadin) increase risk. Unusually a bleeding problem too.
