Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
are you available to chat?
Good morning, yes I am able to chat
Morning, eh? It is 7:15pm here in Wisconsin. :)
anyway you are describing a subconjunctival hemorrhage.
In the vast majority of cases, sub conjunctival hemorrhage is nothing to worry about. It is usually not a sign of any serious condition but rather is just a small broken blood vessel in the conjunctiva that looks much worse than it really is. No treatment is necessary. Think of a subconjunctival hemorrhage as a bruise. The reason it looks so red (some people say it looks like a piece of raw meat) is that the skin on your eye is very thin so the underlying blood shows through easily. On your arm, for instance, a bruise looks blue/purple because the overlying skin is thick, blocking the red color of the blood. Like a bruise elsewhere a subconjunctival hemorrhage will slowly go away over the course of a couple of weeks. It may spread around the globe some and change colors as it clears. This is nothing to be concerned about.
It is the middle of winter here.......guess that makes it summer on your end of the planet.
Ahhhhh so sorry, I didn't realise you are so far - for some reason I thought I talk to doctors here in Australia - funny. Yes you right, here is nice and sunny and there is nice and cold . Thank you for your answer, I was little bit worry - because it hapenned 2 days ago and it didn't go away and to see a doctor /i was scared that he will take my eye out - hehe/
Na. You're gonna be just fine. Nothing to worry about.
Hopefully someday I can get to your country. I'd love to see the Southern Cross with my own eyes. Anyway, it is always a pleasure to help my friends from Down Under. :o)
