Treatment For Bleeding In The Eyeball?
In my eyes (the white one) is like blood, then I browse and I might have sub-conjunctival bleeding. I want to ask, can subconjunctival bleeding cause hyphema?
Hello Hilmi, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Subconjunctival hemorrhage is a condition where there is damage (rupture) of thin and fragile blood vessels that are located under the conjunctival layer of the eye. These blood vessels if broken will not cause pain, and this condition can be caused by several things such as coughing, sneezing or straining too hard, rubbing the eyes too hard, being exposed to foreign objects, high blood pressure, and others. This situation itself is not dangerous, does not require treatment and can disappear by itself, but it takes several days to several weeks depending on the amount of bleeding that occurs. But if accompanied by eye pain or tenderness, watering or vision problems (becoming blurry) you should immediately check your eyes to the doctor to get further treatment.
Hyphema is a condition in which there is blood in the front eye chamber which is located between the cornea (eye membrane) and iris (membrane of eye color). This situation can only occur if there is injury that is severe enough to the eye so that it causes tears in the iris so that bleeding occurs into the eye chambers. This situation is very different from the subconjunctival hemorrhage that you are experiencing at this time, and please note that subconjunctival bleeding cannot cause hyphema because the mechanism of the two diseases is very different and unrelated.
I hope this helps.
