Subconjunctival Hemorrhage

A subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs when a tiny blood vessel breaks under the conjunctiva.  A subconjunctival hemorrhage often occurs without any injury to your eye. Even a strong sneeze or cough can cause a blood vessel to break in the eye. You don’t need to treat it.  A subconjunctival hemorrhage is usually a harmless condition that disappears within two weeks.   You should stay away from aspirin, and use cold packs to reduce inflammation.
