Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello. I have read your notes with Dr. James and since he's unavailable right now, may I ask you a few follow-up questions to better understand the problem?
Is this blood blister on the eyelid (ie on the skin), on the inside of the eyelid (can only see when pulling the eyelid down), or is it on the white part of the eye?
Have you been coughing, sneezing, or otherwise straining previous to this onset?
Do you take aspirin, motrin, ibuprofen or other blood thinners?
Has there been any pain or decreased vision associated with this?
If it is just a blood "blister", a localized cyst-like spot full of blood, and not a bruise, then there is nothing you need to do about it at this point. Cool compresses can help limit additional bleeding. If this is a bruise (looks like you got hit), then you should see an ophthalmologist to determine if there is anything around the eye causing the bruising.
If this persists or you have multiple occurrences of this, or if you start to have eye pain or decreased vision, then you should consult your ophthalmologist about it.
