Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Is your vision OK?
Are you there?
I guess you have stepped away from your computer for a bit as my system shows that you are in the chat room.
It sounds like you have experienced 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.
Here is an excellent article of the topic:
There is no need to stop your daily aspirin or to do anything about it.....
Does this make sense to you?
i have no problem with my eyesight
good. As a diabetic, however, it is important that you have at least a yearly complete eye exam by an ophthalmolgist
oops...forgot an "o" before the "g"
My pleasure. Have a good day.
