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?
I guess you have stepped away from your computer.
Yes. This type of bleeding can commonly occur after pterygium surgery where dissolvable stitches are used. As the stitches start to normally dissolve sometimes a small blood vessel can open up and bleed. I believe that this is what has happened in your case.
Since the bleeding has stopped I agree with the on-call doctor: There is nothing to worry about.
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
