What is the cause for bleeding behind the eye and covering the vision
what causes blood from the back of the eyes to bleed and blood comes up in front and covers the vision. I am not sure whats causes it but the doc. said it might be a vien/s that poped in the back of the eye and is not to serious. But i am still concerned!!

James, this is not as simple as you think.  Proliferative diabetic retinopathy is the most common culprit.  A retinal vascular occlusion is also a possible casue including branch or central retinal vein or artery occlusion.  The end cause usually is severe ischemia or lack of blood flow and oxygen to the retina which causes small proliferative vessels that are very unhealthy and fragile (neovascularization) and bleed easily.  See an EyeMD Ophthalmologist to have your problem taken care of.
