Vomitted. Bloody spots in both eyes. Swelling around eyes. Matter of concern?

I was sick Sunday and I threw up. I went to sleep and when I woke up, I noticed bloody spots in both of my eyes. My face was swollen around my eyes. I figured it was just from throwing up. It s been three days and If I look up, down, or rub them it hurts. I also noticed today more bloody spots and that they now have a yellowish tint to them. Should I be worried or is this just from throwing up?

Dear Zenon, The bloody spots in your eyes post vomiting are subconjuctival haemorrhage which is due to bleeding of the small vessels in your eyes as there is breakage of the vessels due to high back pressure in the veins when you cough.These heamorrhage will subside in 3-4 weeks.You don't have to do anything for that. But if you have pain and discharge you can use NSAIDs drops along with some antibiotic drops for 1-2 weeks.Don't try to rub them as it will cause more damage to the friable capillaries and the bleeding will increase....TC..Dr Ajay Shankar Kar.
