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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
