Swollen Cheeks And Bruises Under The Eyes After Falling Off The Motorbike?
Good afternoon, I want to ask about my eyes, which after a day I fell from the motorbike, at first my cheeks were swollen and the day after that the area under my eyes had bluish bruises, and resulted in red discharge “like blood in my eyes, is that categorized as dangerous? For my eyes, please answer, when I fell off the motorbike I was immediately taken to see a doctor who practices near the house, now I haven’t checked my red eyes again.
Hao, Thank you for the question.
If you have an injury to your eye area, in addition to bruising, this injury can also cause the blood vessels in the eye to burst, causing bleeding under the lining of the conjunctiva (subconjunctival bleeding). This condition generally does not require special treatment and will go away on its own. Injury to the eye can lead to more serious conditions but you will usually experience eye pain, blurred vision, double vision, or no vision at all. If you do not have any problems with your vision, please continue to monitor your eye condition. At the same time, you can also apply ice packs to the bruised eye especially during the first 72 hours after the injury. Apply ice packs to the bruised eye for 15 minutes then repeat afterwards.
If this subconjunctival bleeding is more widespread or accompanied by visual disturbances or if you feel worried, please consult your doctor again for further examination.
Hope this information is helpful.
