Subconjunctival hemorrhage, bleeding in the eye, eye injury, ruptured blood
vessels, blood in the eye, bleeding under the conjunctiva, bloodshot eye,
conjunctiva, pinkeye, conjunctivitis.The
conjunctiva is the thin, moist, transparent membrane that covers the white part
of the eye (called the sclera) and the inside of the eyelids. The conjunctiva is
the outermost protective coating of the eyeball. The
conjunctiva contains nerves and many small blood vessels. These blood vessels
are usually barely visible but become larger and more visible if the eye is
inflamed. These blood vessels are somewhat fragile, and their walls may break
easily, resulting in a subconjunctival hemorrhage (bleeding under the
conjunctiva). It is
caused when one of the tiny blood vessels on the white of your eye ruptures and
that tiny drop of blood gets trapped between the white of your eye (the sclera)
and the clear skin that covers the sclera (called the conjunctiva). Sometimes
this blood vessel breakage can be caused by a strong cough, vomiting, lifting
something heavy, constipation strain, a stong sneeze etc. This “trapped” blood
usually takes about 7-14 days to clear up. A subconjunctival hemorrhage appears
as a bright red or dark red patch on the sclera. It is
sort of like a bruise under the skin (but here the “skin” is the clear
conjunctiva)….first the color is red and bright then over time it may turn
different colors over time and become a bit yellowish before it completely
subconjunctival hemorrhages are spontaneous without an obvious cause for this
bleeding from the conjunctival vessels. Often, a person may discover a
subconjunctival hemorrhage on awakening and looking in the mirror. Most
spontaneous subconjunctival hemorrhages are first noticed by another person
seeing a red spot on your eye.
following can occasionally result in a spontaneous subconjunctival hemorrhage:
blood pressure, bleeding
disorder, or a medical
disorder causing bleeding or inhibiting normal clotting.
Subconjunctival hemorrhage can also be non-spontaneous and result from a severe
eye infection, trauma to the head or eye, or after eye or eyelid surgery.
- Most of
the time, no symptoms are associated with a subconjunctival hemorrhage other
than seeing blood over the white part of the eye. Very
rarely do people experience any pain when the hemorrhage begins. When the
bleeding first occurs, you may experience a sense of fullness in the eye or
under the lid. As the hemorrhage resolves, some people may experience very mild
irritation of the eye or merely a sense of awareness of the eye. The
hemorrhage itself is an obvious, sharply outlined bright red area overlying the
sclera. The entire white part of the eye may occasionally be covered by blood. In a
spontaneous subconjunctival hemorrhage, no blood will exit from the eye. If you
blot the eye with a tissue, there should be no blood on the tissue. The
hemorrhage will appear larger within the first 24 hours after its onset and then
will slowly decrease in size as the blood is absorbed. This
condition clears by itself within one to two weeks. Usually, recovery is
complete, without any long-term problems, similar to a mild bruise under the
skin. Like a bruise, a subconjunctival hemorrhage changes colors (often red to
orange to yellow) as it heals. A skin bruise changes to various shades of green,
black and blue as it heals, because the blood is being seen though skin. Because
the conjunctiva is transparent, a subconjunctival hemorrhage never has these
- Call your
ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye care and surgery) if
the subconjunctival hemorrhage does not get better within two weeks or if you
have had multiple subconjunctival hemorrhages. Also,
call your ophthalmologist if you have a hemorrhage in both eyes at the same time
or if the subconjunctival hemorrhage coincides with other symptoms of bleeding
including easy bruising, bleeding gums, or both. Go to
your ophthalmologist immediately if you have a subconjunctival hemorrhage and
you have pain
associated with the hemorrhage, changes
in vision (for example, blurry vision, double vision, difficulty seeing), history
of a bleeding disorder, history
of high blood pressure, or injury
from trauma to the eye.
