Is the blood on the "whites" of the eyes?
no, it is over the entire eye
Does she have any pain?
she does but she wont tell me how bad..it doesn't seem severe
she says it itches too
The blood appears to be a subconjunctival hemorrhage which is bleeding on the whites on the eyes. This is not usually serious and should not affect vision. Pain is minimal.Since you mention the bleeding is quite extensive, it may be best that you have a doctor take a look at it.
would a subconjunctival hemorrahage cover the entire eye?
no, it is limited to the whites of the eyes only.
what other possibility is there?
the more worrisome thing is bleeding around the eye -- retrobulbar hemorrhage.
and can it be treated?
ca it be treated?
The key is the check that the eye is ok and eye pressure is normal.
it sounds that she is best to be evaluated in an urgent care if you deem it necessary.
