Bleeding in the eye can be caused by two things, namely subconjunctival bleeding and hyphema.
Subconjunctival bleeding is bleeding under the conjunctiva. Bleeding occurs under the thin, transparent, moist membrane that covers the whites of the eyes (sclera) and eyelids. There are many delicate nerves and small blood vessels in this layer. Subconjunctival bleeding can be triggered by several things, namely sneezing, coughing, straining, vomiting, high blood pressure, irritation due to use of contact lense, eye infection, trauma, post-surgery and eye rubbing. Subconjunctival hemorrhage can also occur suddenly without an obvious cause. Symptoms that can arise with subconjunctival bleeding include blood covering the whites of the eye and slowly disappearing on its own. This bleeding may heal within a few days or weeks, depending on the extent of the bleeding.
Hyphema is bleeding that occurs in the front of the eye space, between the iris and cornea. Hyphema can be caused by trauma, industrial accidents, falls, fighting, eye infections, blood clotting disorders, sickle cell anemia and eye cancer. Symptoms that can arise in hyphema include visible blood in front of the eyes, pain, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, foggy vision, and vision that is blocked. Hyphema does not resolve on its own like subconjunctival bleeding. Hyphema is a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment.
We recommend that your mother consult directly with an ophthalmologist so that a physical examination, laboratory examination or supporting support can be carried out, and appropriate treatment.
Do not delay doing the examination, when complaints of eye pain associated with bleeding, vision changes, and a history of high blood pressure occur.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
