What can cause a blood vessel to burst in eye?

What can cause a blood vessel to burst in eye?

Several things: High blood pressure and trauma are among the more common causes of a burst blood vessel in the eye. This can be brought on by something as benign as a sneeze or a cough although heavy lifting and vomiting can also play a role. Chronic high blood pressure can predispose you to this as can blood-thinning medications such as Aspirin and Coumadin (warfarin) and certain herbal supplements such as ginkgo.

I got hit in the eye, a blood vessel burst am I okay?

I got hit in the eye, a blood vessel burst am I okay?

Should be fine.: Trauma around the eye will often times cause a "black eye" which is a result of a vein in the area rupturing and bleeding into the surrounding tissue. Over a week or so this will resolve. Bleeding into the white part of the eye can also occur with trauma and many other factors. This too should resolve over one to two weeks. However, it would be wise to see an eye doctor for this area.

How long does it take for a burst blood vessel in back of eye to fix (diagnosed) I have little to no vision in that eye and really struggling?

Seek MD attention!: For a young person (age 33) your description of a "burst vessel" in the back of the eye is very unusual. Possibilities include leakage from a blood vessel such as in diabetic retinopathy or a blocked blood vessel due to cholesterol or hypertension or other source of embolism (clot) such as heart disease or some drugs. Swelling of the macula may present. Best bet is to see a retina specialist.

Can pains in the head be caused by burst blood vessels in the scalp?

Unlikely!: Although one would expect some tenderness at the site of a injured blood vessel, it should remain superficial and not cause any pain in the head proper. If your CT was of the head and is Neg. And the headaches continue, one should follow up with their physician and /or see a Neurologist. Good luck.

Ok to fly with burst blood vessel in my eye?

Depends: In your question, you did not indicate where the burst blood vessel is located. If it is in the conjunctiva (giving a red spot on the white part of your eye - called subconjunctival hemorrhage), then flying is fine. If it is in the retina or elsewhere, then maybe not depending on the cause.
