My sclera

I'm 19 years old and have no health conditions and am on no medication, but I have recently found a blueish tint in my sclera. Was just wondering if anyone could tell me what it might be?

Osteogenesis imperfecta can cause blue sclera. It's a condition that affects bones and connective tissue, and is usually inherited from parents. I would see your doctor to find out if any further testing is necessary for OI or any other condition.

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The bluish tint can be due to stagnation of blood flow or subconjunctival hemorrhage. Please consult an eye specialist regarding this. Take care!
