I Got Into A Fight And May Have Broken Blood Vessel In My Eye
No sweat: The blood wil clear sooner or later. See ophthalomologist to rule out any trauma to the eye structures.
I was in an altercation Sunday that left me with a broken blood vessel in my eye. Just today it is very sensitive to even the smallest about of light?
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.See 2 more doctor answers
In or on surface?: If it is on the surface (you can see it in the mirror) it is most likely not a problem. Occasionally blood vessels break on the surface (called sub-conjunctival hemorrhage) and looks bad, but will resolve on its own. There should not be any pain or vision changes it this occurs. If this happens mutiple times, see and ophthalmologist (there may be undelying cause).
Broken blood vessel?: Patients with dry eyes and allergies can rub their eyes and experience recurrent broken blood vessels from the physical trauma of rubbing the eyes. In some patients it can be due to elevated inr (too much coumadin) or excessive use of Aspirin or ibuprofen. Treating the dry eye or allergies can reduce this. If you have easy bruising or bleeding, check with your primary care doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: This is usually not a serious issue but you may want to have your blood numbers checked.
Why might I wake up with a broken blood vessel (?) in my eye? Sat. Am 1/3 my right eye was blood red. Lessening each day but sunday it 'felt' odd2blink
Coughed or sneezed?: At times, a forceful sneeze or cough can rupture a blood vessel under membrance of the eye--conjuntiva. It is rather common and often causes no pain, only a scary looking eye. Often resolves completely w/o problems. Sometime, there is quite a bit of blood causing a thickening area and thus one can feel something there during a blink/eye movement etc... If u r concerned, consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
I've had a broken blood vessel in my eye for more than 3 years already, there's sometimes pressure in the eye it's in. What can I do to get it removed?
Three years!!!!!! '!!: If it's simply, a broken capillary (small vessel) in the underside of the covering layer of the eye (sub conjunctival hemorrhage), it is not serious and will go away within 3 weeks. Why can it still be seen? Why do u feel pressure? You should have seen an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) a long time ago. Go!See 1 more doctor answer
Usually nothing: Sub conjunctival hemorrhage is a common condition. It may be due to blood pressure ore eye pressure. But usually a cause is not found. Any valsalva maneuver may cause a capillary to break, even heavy lifting or constipation. It is usually benign. But have your eyes checked.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Is it normal to almost faint when you put on your contacts with a broken blood vessel in your eye?
Possible vasovagal…: Event where there is a sudden drop in your blood pressure and you can feel faint, lightheaded, and sweaty. This is a common phenomenon that can occur when the eyes are touched or manipulated. I think that the broken blood vessel is unrelated and will likely resolve just as a bruise in the skin will resolve. All the best!
