1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes and no
A popped blood vessel on the outside of the eye usually causes a subconjunctival hemorrhage, where the eye is bright red over the white part.
This should not affect vision. A popped vessel on the inside, such as in diabetic retinopathy, can cause a vitreous hemorrhage, which definitely can cause blurry vision.
