Recurrent Subconjunctival Hemorrhage's after cataract eye surgery
USA (United States of America)
I am 75 years old and in very good health. In February, I had cataract operations in both eyes. The right eye is fine, clear with improved vision. The left eye has the improved vision too but has been experiencing recurring Subconjunctival Hemorrhages in the two months now since the operation.
One doctor said its the creams or oils I'm using. This makes little sense to me. I'm using nothing new and never had these prior to the operation. I was also told that maybe I'm rubbing that eye when I sleep. Ive never been an eye rubber, this is new since the operation and I feel its directly related.
My family doctor suggested a blood vessel may have been injured during the operation making it sensitive to breakage but will heal over time. Although this doesn't make total sense either because if true wouldn't I have had a Subconjunctival Hemorrhage right after the operation. I did not.
The first Subconjunctival Hemorrhage in the left eye occurred 3 or 4 weeks AFTER the operation (in March) and have been recurring since. Its middle April and Ive had one mild one and three severe ones since then (over the past 4 weeks).
Have you heard of this before? Do you have any information or thoughts on this?
