Hi! Nine days ago I had eye surgey to remove a "Pigmented Lesion" in my right eye. During the surgery they broke a blood vessel in my eye. So, half of the white part of my eye was completely blood shot red. Its gotten 50% better since then but for the last 3 days it has not gotten better. It looks exactly the same.Does this mean the red that remains is permanent? Will it ever go away? How long does a broken blood vessel usually take to clear? Is this normal?
The same thing happened for me when i had eye surgery on my right eye. and it took me more then a month to recover. Even the strong eyedrops could not help to disperse that black redness. eventually you will get rid of it.
I just had eye surgery to remove a pytergium and my eye is deep black/red between my tear duct and iris, I have a black eye and my eye is swollen. When will I start to look normal again. My eye doctor had told me this procedure was minor I didn't expect this.
I had a tonsilectomy about a week ago & my left eye was compleatly blood shot afterwords. I was told this is normal and sometimes occurs after surgery. Can I expect the same 4-6 week recovery period? Is there anything I can do to "speed up" the process? Is there anything aesthetically speaking that I can do? Should I see a doctor?
