How To Heal Blood Vessel In Eye Fast
Time will heal: Think of this as a very visible "bruise" which will slowly, usually in a week, change color and fade away. If especially large, it can resemble a blood blister and become raised. It can also migrate across the surface of the eye since there is little under the clear membrane to keep it localized. In some people, if it's large, I have seen it creep into the lower lid skin with gravity. ...Read more
My baby has popped a blood vessel in his eye and its near the main part of his eye, is there something I could do to help heal the process?
Subconj heme: If it's a subconjunctival hemorrhage (on the white part and not symptomatic to him), best to avoid trauma like eye rubbing (sometimes difficult with a baby but could use an eye shield), severe coughing or straining, giving any blood thinners. If it's not due to a bleeding disorder (would be recurrent), then should resolve on its own. Best to have a baby's eye examined for any other problems. ...Read more
Depends: "broken blood vessel" is actually not a very specific diagnosis. If a small hemorrhage on the eye surface is meant, then it will typically heal and all blood resorbed within 1-2 weeks. If there is a problem in the back of the eye, it may be the tip of the iceberg. Please consider getting a proper evaluation by an eye care professional. ...Read more

Fish oil is a blood thinner that doesn't help broken eye vessels. Is carrot juice also a blood thinner that doesn't help broken eye vessels to heal?
Neither do: Fish oil does prolong bleeding time but not significantly, unless used in high doses usually combined with other anticoagulants like aspirin. Carrot juice, a good source of beta carotene, insignificantly affects bleeding time. Now, your broken eye vessels would not be expected to heal faster with the above, but may slightly increase bruising occurrence, particularly with subconjunctival hemorrhage ...Read more
What causes burst blood vessel in eye? I have one now, it's in the corner of my left eye. Why does it happen?
Tiny grey spot at the end of blood vessel in eye and discolored patch with a tinge of yellowish brown on my sclera. Eyes were irritated with sunblock?
Blood on the eye:
Yes you can pop a small capilary on the surface of the eye. It will often look like a small paint brush painted a red streak.
It often comes with straining or trauma.
It can be frightening but innocent.
It will resolve without drops and without visual damage.
If it was from trauma then you must see the eyeMD/ophthalmologist.. ...Read more

Subconjunctival heme: Your description sounds like a subconjunctival hemorrhage which is very common. The most common cause is dry eye/ ocular surface irritation which would explain your headache. I would try using artificial tears and observation. If you develop decreased vision or increased pain, you should see an eye doctor. ...Read more
Need exam to diagnos: Cannot make a definite diagnosis without an ophthalmologist examination. Some clues that it may be a broken blood vessel are 1. It is usually painless, usually noticed by someone else. 2. It is a shiny brick-red color. If you are experiencing many recurrences, you should check your blood pressure. Artificial tears can beused for comfort. If you have pain or blurred vision need to see ophthalm. ...Read more
Thin vein: You did something to increase the venous pressure in your head; probably coughing or sneezing or lifting something heavy. This caused a little blood seepage from a thin vessel on the eye surface. These are dramatic looking but benign and your eye will absorb the blood over 3-8 days. ...Read more

I have a blood vessel tht has come to the surface and has been for 10 years now under my eye. Is there anything I can do about it? It gets worse
Hide or close it off: The superficial veins under the eyes become more apparent as we lose fat in the face, ;/or as they enlarge from age, heredity etc. They are not needed. They can be safely treated with several sessions of vascular laser (usually not ipl, if more than 1 mm wide); or careful sclerotherapy injections. If it's a volume issue, then refilling the upper cheek with fat, Radiesse (dermal fillers) or artefill can help. ...Read more
Yesterday I woke up with a bursted blood vessel in the left corner of my eye. I did not hit anything. Should I be concerned about it? I'm 25 yrs. Old.
Unlikely problem: The surface of the eye has veins which sometimes have a weakened walll at some point. A little blood can seep out with eye rubbing, coughing, sneezing, lifting too much weight, etc. This looks dramatic but is benign and will absorb with no action on your part in 3-10 days depending upon the amount. You need only be concerned if you have bruising/bleeding elsewhere. ...Read more
