Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
no chge in vision my son had open heart surgery and went to eye dr and he answered as if it had to do withn his surgery that is why i am questioning this
How old is your son?Blood clots in one eye or both eyes?Diabetes?What was the surgery for?
do you have an answer for me
Can you provide me with more information?
my son is 51 I think in one eye. The surgery was for blockage on left main
Surgery for blocked heart vessels or coronary bypass shouldn't cause bleeding or clots in his eyes.
Sometimes, high blood pressure can do it.
There is another type of blood clot called Roth spots.
This can sometimes be an indication of heart valve problems.
As a general rule, as long as the bleeding is minimal, then it is not a problem as it will resorb.
it is important to indentify the underlying cause to ensure that it doesn't continue to recur.
I wouldn't think a cornonary bypass would cause blood clots in the eyes however.
no high blood pressure. Does it mean probably a valve [problem after heart surgery
No, it doesn't appear the doctor was worried about a valvular issue.
I'm sure you son has had an echocardiogram which would have looked at the valves as well.
yes he did thank you i am not sure if this answered my question I think the best thing we should look into this
It doesn't appear the doctor is worried.
Often times, some bleeding in the eye does not have a identifiable cause.
Recent surgery of any sort cause changes in blood flow.
I don't think there's aything in particular about heart surgery that predisposes to blood clots in the eyes.
No noit at all I know the eyes show alot of your health that is why i was concerned
if the bleeding is on the whites of the eyes, then yes, they are related.
bleeding on the whites of the eyes is of no concern, similar to bruising on the skin.
