Does a broken vein in the eye require medical consultation?

default
Posted on Wed, 1 Aug 2018
Question: I was doing strenuous yard work, and somehow broke a small vein (I guess) in my eye. My eye
doesn't hurt, but it looks bloodshot. Should I make an appointment with a clinic or is it likely
that my eye will be all right in a week or so?

Thank you for your advice,
