My : My main concern with your headaches and broken blood vessels is that your blood pressure may be dangerously high. This would be a good reason to either call your doctor for advice or to go to the er to be checked. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to serious, life-threatening conditions such as heart attack and stroke.

See your doctor: Subconjunctival hemorrhages in the eyes are usually benign, but if you are having severe headache and a history of hypertension, you should seek medical attention asap.

You cannot improve eyesight by so called "natural" means including exercises. ...Read more

If you have had poor vision in the one eye since you were young and you are now an adult, changing the prescription with contacts or surgery may still not improve its ability to see. ...Read more

My eye sight is not good, but when my eyes become watery, I can see perfectly clear. Why is that?
