Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help you. Do you have the ability to take a picture and upload it so I can see what the blood clot looks like? It helps to know which layer of the eye anotomy is involved.

I am not allowed to accept information outside of this thread, it is Just Answer policy. Your other option if you do not see the paperclip icon is to save to a Photo Saving Website (like Shutterfly) and then send the link. You can also request Customer Service help.

A blood clot within the eye can occur for several reasons- a corneal ulcer (which the drops should be helping and resolving) or deeper trauma to the eye. Did your vet check eye pressures?
