The Red Part In The White Area Of the Eye (sclera)?
… I Ika, this morning woke up suddenly in my eyes that the white and white parts have red circles, is that dangerous and how to treat the red? Thank you
Hello Ika! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The red part in the white area of the eye (sclera) can be a blood clot due to the rupture of small blood vessels in the surface area of the eye or foreign objects that enter the eye. Foreign objects in the eye can cause lumps and pain in the eye due to scratches in the eye. If indeed the lump is a foreign object, you should seek the assistance of an eye doctor to help you remove it. Do not try to remove it yourself, as this can cause further scratches and damage to the eyes. When sleeping, a person often unconsciously rubs or hits his own eye or his eyes form objects around him, causing the rupture of blood vessels in the sclera. Blood vessels on the surface of the eye are quite fragile, can even rupture due to coughing or loud sneezing. Rupture of blood vessels in the surface of the eye is called subconjunctival bleeding. The surface of the eye cannot absorb blood quickly, so the blood that comes out of the blood vessels will be trapped to form a red circle like you told. The red circle in this condition is bright red. Subconjunctival bleeding is usually harmless and will go away on its own in about 2 weeks. If more than one circle is seen or you experience this quite often, you should see a doctor in person. You also need to be vigilant if this disorder occurs along with bleeding in other areas. Avoid scratching or rubbing parts of your eyes. If it feels itchy, you can use artificial tears that are sold freely at pharmacies to reduce the itching. If the redness in your eyes becomes wider or accompanied by watery eyes, a lot of eye discharge, or pain, you should immediately see an eye doctor because you might experience inflammation in the eye.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
