…and a blood vessel in my eye burst.
[quote]It is quite common for a blood vessel on the front of the eye to burst. The vessel in the conjunctival tissue that lines the white part of the eye (sclera). When the bleed occurs it makes the white part of the eye go very red and it can look quite spectacular causing some distress.
Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done to prevent these happening despite some people getting them regularly. There is no treatment other than to wait for the blood to be absorbed. It usually takes about 2 weeks to go completely. There is some association with high blood pressure and these spontaneous burst blood vessels. [/quote]
Looks pretty horrible.
I was yelling at the little angels in my class to be quiet when it happened. Some of the kids noticed and felt quite sick (good!).
I knew something had happened, as my eye felt a little strange. As if there was a small pain, but barely noticeable. My head on that whole side feels kind of strange too. Maybe I’m just imagining it.
It’s about a 5mm circulary squarey thingy in the white part of my right eye. You cant see it if I look straight on, but if I look to the left, you’ll see it like…uh…a big red blood dot on a white eyeball. :shocker:
Update: Got a pic of my eye for you!
I’ve had this before, but last time was from pushing on the toilet too hard. Didn’t think I could get them from yelling too loud (I guess a strain is a strain is a strain.)
Does anyone know, could this get any worse if I strain myself again? If yes, please explain in more detail.
Anyone else had a similar experience?
P.S. Didn’t know where to post this. So Open Forum it is.
