Blood Clot Behind The Eye
How much of a chance is it that the body can naturally dissolve a blood clot behind the eye in the temporal artery?
Clears by itself: Your body will usually dissolve the blood clot on its own. The more important question is why it happened? Are you on blood thinners? Did you have trauma? Are you a diabetic or have high blood pressure? The important thing is to address the problem that caused the blood clot to form in the first place to prevent it from occurring again. ...Read more
What to do if I have had multia blood clots in eyes for last 3 years. cumudin didnt stop them, arixtra daily injections?
I woke up with a blood clot in my eye this morning and it looks like it's coming out of my eye what is this..I'm worried?
Eye exam: If there is blood in the white of your eye this is a broken blood vessel; however, if you truly feel that something is trying to come out of your eye, I would advise ER evaluation. A broken blood vessel, will cause the white of your eye to fill with blood. If your vision is distorted, go NOW! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had an injury near eye .. Thrz a blood clot which looks like a dark mark only its red . How will it go away? .. Its been ten days ..
How do get blood clots out of my eye due to a hard hit by someone and if the blood is severely spreading throughout my eyeball should I be concerned?
Will likely resolve: Not sure how long ago you had the piercing done, but most likely the clot will resolve itself in a week or two. The tongue is a very vascular structure (has good blood supply) and can bleed quite a bit when injured. But also because of this good blood supply, injury to the tongue often heals quite well, and rather quickly. So, if after 2 wks and the clot is not any better, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
My 16 month old baby fell from a high chair and hurt her eye . She has a large blood clot on the white off her eye should I be concerned?
Yes: If the trauma was bad enough to cause a hemorrhage within the white of her eye, she should have a through dilated eye exam by an ophthalmologist to see if there is any internal damage. She also may have a fracture. A fall from a high chair can also cause head injuries that should be assed by a neurologist. I would take her to the er. ...Read more

Blood clot in posterior to the retina due to blunt injury to the eye with loss of vission. Pls tell me if the vision comes back or not?
Depends: Depends on the severity of the hemorrhage. As an oculoplastc specialist i deal with blunt trauma all the time but i leave the retina issues to a retinal specialist and concern myself with the bones. Hopefully one of the excellent retinal specialists on this forum will answer. As a general rule, the longer the vision remains poor and is not improving, the poorer the prognosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
September 5th I got pink eye,it went away.next Saturday I was ok.this Saturday my eyes got swollen shut and now I have a blood clot. please help?
I'm not sure..: ...what you mean by blood clot? Perhaps you are seeing red/blood in the sclera/white part of your eye? Most conjunctivitis is viral, and will often clear without antibiotics. But with a recurrence, seemingly more severe with thicker discharge you need to see your ophthalmologist or primary provider. A physical exam and evaluation of your eyes is needed. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I experienced partial temporary blindness and then a red blood clot in my eye.what does that indicate?
Migraine with aura?: Do you mean you lost your vision then, saw a bright red dot of some sort in your visual field during the period of blindness or when the vision came back? Did this red dot obscure objects to the point of your not being to see them or was it a just kind of blurry blob of some sort? Did it change size or shape? Did it move or was it fixed? Did you lose vision like a curtain coming down or BAM GONE? ...Read more
I got stitches in my eyebrow in the ER because i got a cut over my eye now the white part of my eye is filled with blood clots what do I need to do?
See your eye doctor: This is likely not a cause for concern. After a trauma to the eye, it is common for blood vessels in the white of the eye to break. This looks worse than it is. However, you should see an eye doctor to make sure you didn't suffer any more serious injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could a bulging vain in my forehead above my left eye be a blood clot? I read on a website that it may be a blood clot and to treat it with heat.
Not blood clot: If or if it's best to see your eye doctor. Chances are high that is not a blood clot and often blood clots are not visibly seen by the naked eye. It's microscopic and small and the tissues around it could appear swollen (ie, blood clot in lower leg, DVT). Bulging veins alone don't indicate that a blood clot is present. Please see your eye doctor soon to confer & alleviate your worry. Be well! ...Read more
