Eye, Subconjunctival Hemorrhage
Sudden appearance of blood in the white area of the eye (conjunctiva). Although the bleeding may appear frightening, it is not painful or serious.
Subconjunctival hemorrhage tends to be more common among those with diabetes and hypertension.
Signs and symptoms
A small, painless collection of bright red blood over the white of the eye. Swelling may occur in the affected area of the conjunctiva. The condition doesn't interfere with vision.
Subconjunctival hemorrhages are diagnosed by direct examination.
Blood pressure should be tested. If other areas of bruising or bleeding are present, more specific tests may be needed.
Consult a doctor if there has been injury to the eye or a change in vision.
Use appropriate equipment to protect the head and face from injury.
