Blood Shot Eyes Lead Blindness
Possibly: Floaters are usually a natural condition that occurs as the gel that fills the back of the eye forms cracks over time. High blood sugar can lead to damage, abnormal blood vessel growth, and breaks in the small blood vessels in the back of the eye, which can in turn cause bleeding in the eye. You may experience this as floaters. An eye doctor can quickly determine the cause of your floaters. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes and no: A popped blood vessel on the outside of the eye usually causes a subconjunctival hemorrhage, where the eye is bright red over the white part. This should not affect vision. A popped vessel on the inside, such as in diabetic retinopathy, can cause a vitreous hemorrhage, which definitely can cause blurry vision. ...Read more
Blurred vision in one eye, headaches, muscle twitches, dark/yellow circles around eyes. Cat scan of brain & blood work normal. Sound serious?
See an eye doc: Even though cat scan normal, you should still be seen by an ophthalmologist given your symptoms especially if they are progressive.
