Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How sharp was the toy? Is your vision affected at all (close the other eye)?
Well....that doesn't sound that sharp to me :) Should I ask how the head of a barbie managed to get that close to your eye ;o)
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.
I think you are going to live. No need to worry, run to the ER (they don't know anything about eyes anyway) or see an ophthalmologist. This will heal on it's own with no residual problems.
Don't let Ken find out about this tho......
Ohhhh......now I understand. still not very sharp.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)

No. That area has wonderful blood supply so it heals fast and has low risk of infection. Of course, it depends upon if Barbie has been washing her hands like she should ;)
