Have subconjunctival hemorrhage. Will it be affected while going for dry sauna?

I have a subconjunctival hemorrhage in my eye, probably from being upside down too long on my Dad s inversion table. I understand it will take at least 10 days to clear up on its own. (Yick) If I get in a dry sauna , as I love to do when I work out, will it make it worse, help, or not affect it? The sauna opens up blood vessels in the skin. What does it do to the eyes?

hello sir,
as you have mentioned that you have subconjunctival hemorrhage, it will get resolved with its own with in with in 10-15 days. it occurs because of rupture of small conjunctival vessels. what is your age??? what is a cause of this hemorrhage??
most common is trauma, high blood pressure, cough etc
you can work out, it would not get worse as it is only clotted blood.but you can start taking vitamin c tablets. it increases recovery.
sauna definitely dilates conjunctival blood vessels.
thank you
take care
