Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry to hear of this spontaneous rupture in your eye.

Can you send a picture?

May I assume you have no pain or discomfort? You stated that your vision has not been effected. A spontaneous blood vessel rupture is not uncommon and will resolve by itself in about 10 days. There is no treatment needed. If , however, your vision does change or pain develops, then a visit to your Ophthalmologist is suggested.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
