Is flying advisable when having eye problem? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi, I am a 38 year old female and woke up this morning with blood in my eye. I'm due to get on a flight in about 2 hours (1.5 hr flight), and another international flight on Monday. Is there risk in flying?
Can you describe the blood in eye?
It's mostly on the top of the eye, above my pupil, and also a bit on the sides.
Very red in color
The other eye is fine.
Is it inside the eye lining
I think so? It's not bleeding out of the eye, just remaining in same place.
It seems like subconjunctival hemorrhage
It is harmless
You can go on flight
It will take some time to heal
No medicines necessary
OK, thanks. Is there a risk that flying would make it worse? I flew yesterday and had trouble clearing my ears, so I'm assuming today will be the same!
No risk to eyes
For ears you need to swallow somthing while the plane is taking off and is coming down
That makes sense!
Also do not rub your eyes
Do you have any other question?
No, that's all. Thanks for your help.
Thanks for consulting
