From what you have posted, your ophthalmologist
is doing the right thing.
Many times when confronted with a patient like you I work together with a primary care doctor looking for issues that can cause frequent subconjunctival hemorrhages
such as diabetes, uncontrolled high blood pressure, problems with the blood vessels themselves or various bleeding problems.
In my experience, even with an extensive workup, no systemic cause is found and the episodes are chalked up to "stuff happens".
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned a “10” rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations.
Thanks in advance,
Dr. Rick MD FACS
It sounds to me like you are getting excellent care.
