Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Do you mean optic DISC hemorrhages? or bleeding around the optic nerve in the brain?
Thank you for the information.
Now i think your doctor meant that you have optic disc hemorrhages which she would have noticed after looking into your eyes by using a fundoscope. Now she is right usually the optic disc hemorrhages are due to hypertension as well as other causes such as glaucoma itself, age, aspirin use, smoking etc. Once the cause is determined then it can be treated. Usually the hemorrhages themselves are not treated as they are not the problem, they are an indication of an underlying disease process, once that disease is treated the hemorrhages disappear over time. This is why in most cases, the eyes are examined regularly while investigations are done to determine the underlying cause. I think its likely that the glaucoma itself may have caused the hemorrhage and if this is the case then treating glaucoma more effectively will cause them to disappear.
Do you have any more questions?
