SUB CONJUNCTIVAL HAEMORRHAGE

Sub conjunctival haemorrhage is a bright red patch appearing in the white of the eye beneath the conjunctiva or the clear lining. It can occur after sudden or severe sneezing, heavy lifting, straining, vomiting or rubbing one’s eyes vigorously. Sometimes it is caused as a side effect of eye surgery or due to usage of blood thinners. In most cases, no treatment is required and the patch disappears on its own within 2 weeks

If you have a haemorrhage in both eyes at the same time or if the subconjunctival haemorrhage coincides with other symptoms of bleeding, including easy bruising, bleeding gums, or both, please get further investigations carried out to determine the cause of the same.
