What is the cause for bleeding from eye socket?
User rating for this question
Thursay morning I awakened with bleeding from my eye socket. Rather substantial amount perhaps a tablespoon, Went to retinologist at Joslin C linic, Boston and after thorough exam he said the blood was not emanating from the eyeball which, by the way, has a very dense cataract.. Yesterday morning awoke with blood from eye socket again, but reduced greatly in amount. Last night, about 7:30 P_M , eye started to bleed slightly again from, I believe, the socket and not the eyeball. I am borderline diabetic and, coincidentally, suffer fro Addison's disease as did President XXXXXXX F. XXXXXXX I take 250 MG of Keppra twice daily. .1 mg ofFludrocotisone and 5 mg of Prednisone, both for Addison's (Adrenal insufficiency). 26 mg of Amlodopine and 75 mg of Metoprolol for Blood Pressure, 5 mg of Coumadin (warfarin) for XXXXXXX s. Calsium and vitamin D (twice a day.

Brief Answer: Please follow the answer below... Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXX, I have read your medical history and could say that there are many cause of eye bleeding in your case: - high blood pressure. Although you say that your bp is well-controlled, I'd suggest to monitor your bp - Warfarin. It can inhibit the normal clotting of the blood. Sometimes, when you sneeze or cough (in extreme cases), the blood vessels can disrupt and blood takes time to clot. - cataracts or glaucoma which might be aggravated by cortisonics use. - diabetes, especially associated with retina problems. At the end, I suggest to discuss with your ophthalmologist to further evaluate your eye condition and reconsider the use of the medications you are taking. Hope it answered to your inquiries!
