Ruptured blood vessels in left eye?
What would cause a very large area of the eye to have a blood vessel obviously rupture?

mostly valsalva maneuvers: sneezing fit, coughing fit, lifting something heavy, constipation, etc.  anything that would cause a temporary raise in blood pressure in your head.

but the 2 other big causes are:

1) undiagnosed high blood pressure
2) IDIOPATHIC (which means no one knows! or just bad luck)

if you have one isolated event, dont worry too much about it.  it'll take a good 6 weeks to heal.  if you have more than say 2 a year, i'd be thinking undiagnosed high blood pressure (unless you're already on super blood thinners like coumadin for heart disease...that could cause it as well)
