Heterozygous factor V is not that much a risk factor for DVT (deep vein thrombosis
) or retinal vein or artery
occlusion as is the homozygous form. When you refer to a burst blood vessel in your eye, I assume you are referring to the vessels visible of the white area of your eye called the sclera. There is no need to worry if the subsequent hemorrhage is small and you have no vision problems. The eye does feel heavy and uncomfortable but that goes in a day or two. You may use a warm compress over the closed eye to hasten absorption of the subconjunctival hemorrhage
. You have no cause for concern.
