Hello,

Do you find some redness inside the eye or it is only outside the eye?

Do you suffer from high blood pressure?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No redness in the eye. No I do not suffer from high blood pressure

Hello,

This is basically superficial haemorrhage most likely due to variation in blood pressure. You need to be examined to assess for Bleeding time & clotting time along with blood pressure. Meanwhile you should take Vitamin C 500mg. BD. In case there is severe pain only then Tylenol can be taken.

Is there any swelling on the corner of the eye that you mentioned?
Does it hurt when you press on that area?

Please let me know because I have a condition in mind which is different from what has been mentioned.

Kindest Regards

No swelling. It only slightly hurts when touched.

Thank you

Hello,

In my opinion this is either subconjunctivat or superficial haemorrhage.

The area that you mentioned: the inner corner of the eye near the nose is where the tear sac lies. I think that you are most probably have some blockage in the tear sac that is causing mild inflammation and causing the redness and the area to feel tender to touch. I would respectfully XXXXX XXXXX the expert in saying that I do not think this is superficial hemorrhage.

Kindest Regards
