Answer to your Health Question

Question: : I keep getting burst blood vessels in my eyes. I have had an eye check (which is fine)and my blood pressure is not high. What other causes could there be for it?. Gillian

Answer: Dear Gillian,

This bleeding is called subconjunctival hemorrhage and occurs without a known cause.
If your blood pressure is OK the bleeding can result from trauma, eye infections, vomiting, coughing, sneezing, exertion, lifting or fatigue.

It is not dangerous and leaves no residual change in vision.
