Question

 

 

Hi,

I've had a subconjunctival hemorrhage for over 4 weeks. It started as a very concentrated little spot, and then started spreading within 2 or 3 days. Everything I've read says it should last a week or two.

I'm just concerned that it's taking so long to go away. Are there possible reasons of why it won't go away? Due to COVID-19, I'm not eager to go to the doctor's office.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Thanks for your Question

First of all Coronavirus doesn't cause subconjunctival hemorrhage. Sometimes it might take more than a month for the eye to clear this blood.

This blood clot disappears gradually and slowly and for that sometimes it is hard for people to notice any changes in the size of blood clot so it might  better to take a pic of it weekly and compare between these pics for any changes.

Don't rub your eyes and try to sleep on the other side. Cough and straining during bowel movement can make it worse.

In case no improvement within the next 2 weeks you have to visit an eye doctor for full eye examination to be sure there is no underlying cause.
