Resolved Question:

I was vomiting so hard the other night that a lot of capillaries broke around my eyes, and it felt like my eyes were going to pop right out. Could that happen?

It is very very unusual for the eyes to pop out of the eye socket. It can happen to some folks who have hyperthyroidism but again we are not talking them popping out and falling on the floor, we are talking the lids retracting over the eyeball making the eyes bulge, not comfortable, thankfully very very rare....Regards
