I went to sleep and awoke with what would appear to be a ruptured blood vessel in the left eye in the bottom corner closest to the nose, which then spread to almost half that side of the white. i was given an eyedrop by the name of neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and gramicidin ophthalmic solution. will this help? and how long will this take to clear up? is there anything else i can do to help it clear up i.e ice or cool rag on the eye. Im desperate as it appeared this morning (monday) and i have an engagement on saturday and would be extremely uncomforable if it was still there
Google "subconjunctival hemorrhage" that's what this is. Also search the term on this page. Its common. Unless you are on coumadin (warfarin), heparin, plavix, ticlid or have a blood disease its common and harmless.
The antibiotics are not helpful and not necessary.
Its like a bruise on the eye and there's really nothing you can do to make it go away faster.
