Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello from JustAnswer.
The common bleeding into the eye, which occurs over the whites of the eyes, is called a subconjunctival hemorrhage. It is usually fine to wear soft contact lenses when there has been a subconjunctival hemorrhage. There are some people in whom the amount of blood may make the contact lenses uncomfortable, and if there is any discomfort, it would be appropriate to avoid the use of soft contact lenses, but this is only a small minority of people that have a subconjunctival hemorrhage.
I would note that subconjunctival hemorrhage usually do not occur because of anything within the eye. They will most often happen because of a sudden pressure wave transmitted through the blood vessels, such as during a cough or sneeze. And it usually does not create any sensation when it happens, so it commonly will not be noticed until much later when you look at yourself in a mirror or someone brings it to your attention.
Although unsightly, these are typically not a problem and will resolve spontaneously. It is only very large hemorrhages that may cause symptoms and may need medical care.
If i can provide any additional information, please let me know.
You are very welcome.
