JA: OK. Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I had a bad accident three years ago that damaged my opcitical nerve in my head on the right side which is the eye that is bleeding, I get Frequent Headaches from this head injury still and it causes alot of nerve pain and pressure behind the eye, I did have one of those headaches last night

You should keep pressure on the eye lid with something (the hand or finger) for 15 minutes. If you don't have bleeding disorder, the bleeding will stop. If the bleeding doesn't stop, you should go to the ER or urgent care.
