Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
have you seen my description of the eye problem?
I have now had 3 or 4 repeated episodes over the past month (occurs almost once per week ) where only my right eye becomes bloodshot. It is in the same position in the eye, the inside portion. The appearance is both overall and cracked line-like. No discomfort, no discharge, no history of allergies. I am a 62 year old male, 152 lbs, 5'6" and except for mild hypertension (now taking Bennical HCT) no health issues. This has never happened before, my eye doc has examined my eyes and confirms that it's a hemorrhage and not something like herpes. He has ordered a blood test for clotting disorder. Waiting on these results at the moment. Is there something else we are missing that could be causing this. Also, I am not taking any regular daily doses of vitamins like D, E etc. Was not taking aspirin nor any other pain meds prior to this.
Only one more question...given the info I've provided to you, and your past experience, what is probability that these events just stop at some point? Assuming no diabetes, or other bleeding maladies, what percentage of your patients find that the events simply stop after some period of time...or do you find that once started most patients seem to experience these continuously in the future?
