Something wrong w/ my eye

  1. I have some blood vessels that ruptured in my eye and so it's all red and looks really bad. Does anyone know of anything that I can put in it or do to make it clear up faster? (I already tried icing and it didn't work.) Thanks.

    its a sub conjunctival haemorrahage and will go on its own! nothing you can do to speed it up- you need to reabsorb the blood. depending on how bad it is, can take a couple of weeks. might be worth getting your BP checked as high bp can cause this but can also be caused by sneezing, coughing etc. women in labour often get them too. nothing to worry about!

    Ha! Ha! Hmm...Interesting....;-) The "diagnosis" does make sense though since I have really bad allergies lately (coughing, sneezing, etc.) I was freaking out and thought I had glaucoma (sp) or something. Thanks.
