What does the OTHER guy look like???

A subconjunctival hemorrhage (sub-kun-JUNK-tih-vul HEM-uh-ruj) occurs when a tiny blood vessel breaks just underneath the clear surface of your eye (conjunctiva). The conjunctiva can’t absorb blood very quickly, so the blood gets trapped. You may not even realize you have a subconjunctival hemorrhage until you look in the mirror and notice the white part of your eye is bright red.

A subconjunctival hemorrhage often occurs without any obvious harm 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. Your symptoms may worry you. But a subconjunctival hemorrhage is usually a harmless condition that disappears within two weeks or so.

But hey! My face looks thinner! (Down 10lbs as of this morning!)

I also look old.

And very tired.

And grey.

  1. Ouch…but just as long as you’re not seeing red…I suppose! Hope it heals quickly. So how many of these have you had? So I was listening to scary stories last night on the radio before I drifted off to sleep. There was a couple of stories about “black-eyed children.” The entirety of their eyes are black. If they come to your door, you’re not supposed to let them in nor let them touch you or really bad things will happen. This is a case of the red-eyed Boo, though. I’d let you in any time.
