I was at my boyfriends drinking last night and apparently had too much because I got really sick. I woke up this morning and when I went to look in the mirror I apparently ruptured a blood vessel in my eye. I have blood in the bottom (where you can pull down the bottom lid and see the blood) in both eyes and in my right eye I have blood that reaches up towards my ires and I was just wondering if that would be caused because of the violent regurgitation? I also wanted to know since I wear glasses/contacts if I should avoid my contacts for a while and just stick with my glasses if that would be the best idea. My eye does feel a bit dry so if I can use eye drops or something that would be a good thing to know. ...ALSO wasnt sure if this would only be caused due to hitting my head? His mom seemed to think I must have "whacked" my head on something in order for this to happen. I really wanted to know how long it will take to heal? If it's in the range of like a few days or a week or a few weeks ... months? Just some general info. Thanks
A subconjunctival hemorrhage (harmless broken blood vessel in the eye) is one of those things opthamologist don't have any real threatment for, nor are most able to even tell you why people get them. But I had a series of approximate seven (7) in the first six (6) month of 2008. I went to three different opthamologist, and not one could tell me why they were occurring or how to avoid having them. In my opinion, opthamologist are seriously ignorant about the subject, and/or too busy to ask enough questions to figure out what causes them. After my seventh subconjunctival hemorrhage in 2008, I started looking at any and everything that might possibly cause them and I finally figured it out without the supposed medical wizards. What I figured out was that the hair spray that I was using, had contaminated my contact lens solution, and the day after wearing my contacts, I would develop a subconjunctival hemorrhage. But once I discovered that for myself, I started making sure my saline solution bottle was always capped tightly, and not exposed to any hair spray mist. That was 18 months ago, and I've not had one subconjunctival hemorrhage since. So if you have been adversely effected by subconjunctival hemorrhages, I'd encourage you to look at anything you put in your eye or around the outside of your eye. In my case, hair spray contaminating my saline solution was causing my contracts to stick to my eyes, and when I removed them, it was pulling on the surface of my eye when removed.
