ruptured blood vessel - coumadin patient
How concerned should a coumadin patient be with a ruptured blood vessel in the eye?  This is not the first time, but it looks horrible.... most of the white of the eye looks dark... no pain or other symptoms.

If taking coumadin is extremely important then you will just need to watch your INRs thinnes index. Blood on the outside looks nasty but isn't generally serious blood in the eye is much different.  If you're on coumadin you bruise easily, this is basically what is happening on the eye.
