Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
do you have a sinus infection ?? what is causing the pressure there? any caughing, sneezing, runny nose?
sinus infections do not directly in any way lead to surface bleeding on the eye. The term for the bleeding on the eye is called a subconjunctival hemorrhage. While it can be pretty scary looking, it isn't a serious problem. It happens when a blood vessel in the conjunctiva (the white part of the eye) breaks and releases blood. This often tends to occur after frequent sneezing, coughing, after rubbing the eye or for no apparent reason. It tends to happen more frequently in people who have high blood pressure or you use blood thinning medicines, such as asprin, motrin, plavix, vitamin e, coumadin, among others. It can also happen more when there are seasonal allergies and the eyes are red as the blood vessels are dilated. The blood will be reabsorbed into the body within a week or so. There is nothing you can do to make it go away sooner. Usually, there is a sensation of the eye feeling slightly full, or a mild pressure sensation and using artificial tears can help with this symptom. This is directly linked to whatever is causing you to bruise easily. I hope you find this helpful, Dr. Stevens
