frequent ruptured blood vessel in left eye
3 time in last 3 weeks I have had a ruptured blood vessel in inner corner of left eye.  This has happened several times over the past few years, but not this often.  Eye doctor says no problem, but this doesn't happen to others.  I do not have high blood pressure.  I do have dry eyes and seasonal allergies.  Could an over the counter 24 hour decongestant contribute to the problem?

Dear cjn348,

I would recommend that you undergo a work up to determine the cause of the ruptured blood vessel.  Usually, one episode is not of concern but three times in three weeks warrants an examination for blood clotting disorders, high blood pressure, trauma, increased eye pressure with straining, and/or medications.
