Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.You may have bleeding inside your eyeball.You need to see an ophthalmologist (Eye MD) right away....the sooner the better.Going to Emergency will not be of much value unless they have an ophthalmologist who can come and examine you there....Do not delay getting examined as this could also be a sign of retinal detachment -- which is a blinding condition if not treated promptly.Does this make sense to you? It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me. Dr. Rick MD FACS
