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 more

I have snake eyes pericing and it has a blood clot under the tongue what am I suppose to do?

I have snake eyes pericing and it has a blood clot under the tongue what am I suppose to do?

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

What is the best weight for the eyelid when treating facial paralysis caused by a blood clot on facial nerve?

It depends.: The weight for each person is different. The weight must be heavy enough to close the eye completely, but not so heavy that it causes partial eye closure when the person wants the eye open. Different weights are tested on each eye before the surgery to determine the best weight to implant. ...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?

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 more

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 more

I have loss of vision in one eye, several times a month. Is it caused by a temporary blockage like a blood clot?

Could be a TIA: A temporary loss of vision in one eye can be a sign of a TIA also known as a transient ischemic attack. It can be caused by small blood clots (emboli) that break off from either the heart or carotid artery in the neck. See your primary care provider for evaluation that may include ultrasound studies. ...Read more

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

Suddenly saw a small blood clot in my eye. I have chest infection. Hasn't recovered. Due to blowing of nose? That was the last thing I did. Help

Probably, yes: If you're describing an area of blood overlying what would normally be the white of your eye (the "sclera"), you're describing a "subconjunctival hemorrhage" - a completely harmless condition which will go away on its own and needs no treatment. It can often happen after straining, as with blowing your nose.

If the blood clot is truly *in* your eye - in front of the colored part - go see an md. ...Read more

Do all blood clots cause strokes or is it rare? Asking because very worried about leg aches and odd eye suddenly turned red. Please help terrified

Rare: Very very rare for leg vein clot to cause a stroke. You would need an unusual congenital connection to have a stroke occur from a leg vein clot. Sudden red eye would not be typically associated with this. ...Read more

My husband lost sight in his left eye during valve replacement surgery -- blood clot travelled to eye. Any hope?

My husband lost sight in his left eye during valve replacement surgery -- blood clot travelled to eye. Any hope?

Artery occlusion: Unfortunately there was most likely a retinal artery occlusion or ischemic optic neuropathy of the eye during the surgery. A small plaque or clot may have broken off the heart valve and lodged in the retinal artery. Once obstruction of blood flow has been present for more than about 100 minutes, the damage may be irreversible. It is possible that recovery may come from nearby uninvolved tissues. ...Read more

How much of a chance is it that the body can naturally dissolve a blood clot behind the eye in the temporal artery?

How much of a chance is it that the body can naturally dissolve a blood clot behind the eye in the temporal artery?

Misunderstanding: If you have temporal arteritis with loss of vision, then the problem is inflammed blood vessels, not a blood clot. This is a very serious problem and you must be on strong anti-inflammatory medications. In some cases, but not all, vision will recover. ...Read more

Blood clot in posterior to the retina due to blunt injury to the eye with loss of vision. Pls tell me if the vision comes back or not?

Depends on damage.: Traumatic retinal hemorrhages can range from superficial to catastrophic. If there is too much damage to the retina or there is blood underneath the retina, the damage may be permanent. In that case, the vision may not come back. See your retinal specialist for more specific information. ...Read more

Ddmer test slightly elevated, no blood clot in lungs from CT scan. In the clear, or need to keep an eye on it?

Ddmer test slightly elevated, no blood clot in lungs from CT scan. In the clear, or need to keep an eye on it?

Non-specific: A Slightly elevated D dimer is nonspecific. A negative CT scan with contrast virtually excludes pulmonary embolus as a major cause of the elevated d-dimer. You may need a follow up d-dimer to ensure resolution. If the D dimer remains elevated your general practitioner need to do a battery of tests to determine the reason for the elevated d-dimer. ...Read more

I had a colestrol clot at back of eye and had a vascular scan on my neck and was given clopidogrel and simvasstatin will the blood clot break up?

Uncertain: Generally, clots that lodge in cerebral and retinal (back of eye) vessels do break up or "recanalize", as we say. This may be less true of pucholesterol crystal clots. More importantly, the part of the retina that the blood vessel feeds may have been deprived of blood flow for too long and may not recover even if blood flow is restored. The medicine you are taking is to prevent further emboli. ...Read more

Eyes were white before June. Sinus. Eyes still red. Dialited blood vessels side of eyes and some at bottom. Could this be a blood clot? Eye exam normal

Eyes were white before June. Sinus. Eyes still red. Dialited blood vessels side of eyes and some at bottom. Could this be a blood clot? Eye exam normal

Chances high not: blood clot, but perhaps irritated eyes! If you still have your sinusitis brewing that's not helping matters. So if your eye exam is normal, and they did a dilated exam too, you are in the clear. Your dilated blood vessels needs to be investigated if it's from contact lens overuse, dry eyes, or other causes. ...Read more

Could severe headaches (over r eye), &daily blood clots high in nose have any relation to recent c4-7 discectomy & fusion?

Possibly: There are many potential causes. When a person is put to sleep it is not uncommon to have tubes placed into the nose, and this sometimes can lead to nose bleeds. Headaches can also have multiple causes, including perioperative headaches from spasm, variations in blood pressure, and even complications such as a spinal fuid leak. You should probably be checked. Thank you for your question. ...Read more

Superficial blood clot in arm. Sudden severe blurred vision in left eye with dizziness nearly passing out. Connection? Back to ER?

Emergency Room: Whether or not it is related, with any acute sudden change (in this case, your vision in the left eye), you belong in the ER to get it evaluated. You never relayed the cause of the superficial blood clot, nor underlying medical problems, so it is hard to say if it is related; but if the vision suddenly went blurry, get to the ER to get a diagnosis! Don't lose your vision waiting for an online deba ...Read more

On Coumadin (warfarin) for four years. Had DVT left leg from fall. Second DVT left leg one year later. Today diagnosed with blood clot eye. Are the from first dvt?

On Coumadin (warfarin) for four years. Had DVT left leg from fall. Second DVT left leg one year later. Today diagnosed with blood clot eye. Are the from first dvt?

No: A DVT would have nothing to do with a blood clot in the eye. If they DVT dislodges, it goes to the lungs which is quite dangerous. A blood clot in the eye could certainly be related to the coumadin, (warfarin) however. Be sure they are following your Coumadin (warfarin) levels closely, and follow your eye doctors recommendations. ...Read more
