Hello Dhini, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Blood that collects behind the cornea of ​​the eye is called a hyphema. Hyphema can occur due to many possibilities, but the most common causes are blunt eye trauma and eye surgery.

Mild hyphema (small bleeding, less than 50% of the eye) generally resolves on its own in 1-2 weeks. Sometimes it is necessary to re-operate to clean the blood behind the cornea if there are certain indications, such as large hyphema and does not disappear after a certain time (depending on the size of the hyphema), there is a significant increase in eye pressure (according to the size of the hyphema too), there are corneal staining, there are certain diseases (such as sickle cell anemia).

It is better if you discuss again with your mother's eye doctor to know clearly what action is needed in accordance with the hyphema condition in your mother's eye. Some of the things your mother can do at home include:

get more rest, make sure the head is raised as high as possible that can be tolerated when lying down and sleeping avoid doing strenuous activities avoid using pain medications that can affect blood clotting such as drugs from the NSAID class your mother can take painkillers such as paracetamol if her eyes hurt use eye drops prescribed by the doctor as directed use an eye patch to protect the eye from further injury

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
