Patient Comments: Subconjunctival Hemorrhage - Cause

What was the cause of your subconjunctival hemorrhage?

Comment from: Martha, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: April 15

I have recurring uveitis. Every time I get the steroid injection, I get a burst blood vessel in that eye. My problem is that I can't use the prednisolone drops until two days after the burst blood vessel; as the drops feel like I just put soil in my eye.

I had a hard workout with heavy lifting and cardio intervals with a trainer and woke up with a subconjunctival hemorrhage.

I am not sure what caused my subconjunctival hemorrhage but I had bad hay fever and took an antihistamine in the afternoon. I also had a massage meaning I was lying on my stomach for quite a while. I have had this hemorrhage a few times before. It also seems to happen if my eyes get dry, which happens easily when hay fever season starts.

Vomitting from sickness was the cause of my subconjunctival hemorrhage. The next morning my left eye showed redness, and it grew into a larger size throughout the day.

My mother woke up this morning with hemorrhaging. She did not cough or vomit. I researched this and nothing indicates she would have a blown eye blood vessel. Any ideas?

My 8 year old had this occur after vomiting several times during the night. It was not until about a day later we noticed the blood - and it progressively got more obvious and also occurred on the other side. Never had occurred with previous vomiting. Doctor said not to worry about it - no treatment required.
