Subconjunctival Hemorrhage

Subconjunctival Hemorrhage is an accumulation of blood underneath the conjunctiva, the clear membrane covering the white part of

the eye.

Usually, no  treatment is needed. Over-the-counter artificial tears can be applied to the eye  if mild irritation is present. The eye does not require a patch.

The use of aspirin or other medication that inhibits clotting should be  avoided. If you are taking aspirin or an anticoagulant for a medical condition,  check with your physician to determine whether the medication should be stopped  or continued.

If your subconjunctival hemorrhage is trauma related, we can determine treatment to promote healing.  If the Subconjunctival hemorrhage is due to an infection, you may be prescribed antibiotic drops or an  ointment.
