What are the symptoms of a subconjunctival hemorrhage?


Answer by  sanityrose (2664)

Subconjunctival hemorrhages' first symptom is a red patching on the white of the eye. This symptom is often called "red eye" or "blood eye". Red eye is the most common symptom, and most often only symptom, before diagnosis. However, some people complain of a heaviness within the eye area.

The most common symptom is the bursting of blood vessels resulting in the eye looking like it is filled with blood.

This would be most noticeable as a red spot on the white part of the eye. It may swell and cause discomfort due to swelling while blinking.

A subconjunctival hemorrhage(bleeding under the conjunctiva)appears as bright red or dark red patches on the sclera(white of the eye). The walls of the conjunctival blood vessels are very thin which ruptures easily because of high blood pressure or rubbing of eyes or eye infections. It generally causes no pain.
