Is the blood in the white part of my eye considered serious?

Rarely: Blood over the white part of the eye is usually from a broken blood vessel causing a subconjunctival hemorrhage. It is rarely serious. Blood thinning agents like Coumadin (warfarin) and Aspirin can make you more prone to have the problem. High blood pressure and straining can cause it. Rubbing the eye can cause it.

I had a stye, I took Gentamicin for 5 days and it went away. Now I have a blood shot area on the white part of my eye spreading to colored part.

Ophthalmologist: I recommend that you be examined by an ophthalmologist. The bloodshot eye could be ruptured capillary and this is not a serious issue even though it looks serious. It usually resolves after a week or so. It should not affect vision or involve the pupil and should not cause eye pain. Because of these latter symptoms, I recommend that you see an ophthalmologist for evaluation and advice. ...Read more

See your eye doctor: This is likely not a cause for concern. After a trauma to the eye, it is common for blood vessels in the white of the eye to break. This looks worse than it is. However, you should see an eye doctor to make sure you didn't suffer any more serious injury. ...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

Red eyes: Are a non-specific finding which are very common. They may be related to contact lens use, exposure to eye irritants, allergies, dry eyes, sunlight exposure, etc. There is no specific cure for red eyes, other than trying to reduce the exposure to the cause of the redness. Try to avoid using "get the red out" drops, since you can become dependent on them. ...Read more

If I apply pressure to a certain part of my neck, my left eye goes blurry. Is this from lack of blood in the eye?

If I apply pressure to a certain part of my neck, my left eye goes blurry. Is this from lack of blood in the eye?

Stop pushing: The ophthalmic artery is the first branch of the internal carotid artery. If you press just to the outside of the windpipe, where you feel a pulse, you are pushing on your carotid artery. This also supplies blood to the brain, and if you press on a certain spot your heart rate and blood pressure may suddenly drop. So, you are probably obstructing blood flow to the eye. Not a good thing. ...Read more

I've been experiencing some discomfort in the back lower part of my head. It feels really weird. What is that? Do I have a tumor or a forming blood clot?

Hard to tell: Although it is probably not emergent, there can be a pathology contributing to the sensation you describe. I would make an appointment with your doctor so they can rule some possibilities like tumor, muscle pain, infection, etc.
A blood clot that moves to the brain is a medical emergency. If you suddenly feel one-sided body weakness, cannot smile or speak, that is your cue to get to the er! ...Read more

I've had dark circles under my eyes for my life I think. But when I pinch the skin lightly, the pinched part looks lighter, normal even. Does that mean it's likely due to blood pooling under eyes?

Probably: If your skin gets lighter in tone when you put pressure on it that implies that some of that hue came from underlying blood. You couldn't push melanin containing cells out by applying some pressure to the skin. ...Read more
