Question: I have had head aches and lots of pressure in my head. two days ago i woke up with a blood vessel burst in my right eye. I have had these in this eye before so I wasn't too concerned but instead of get better more vessels are bursting and the whole eye is bright red. It is not pink eye as you can see exactly where each bursts. I still have the headache and pressure in my head Last blood pressure reading was 139/83. Getting really concerned
Thank you for your help

Brief Answer:
bp control

Detailed Answer:

Please see that you need strict BP control, blood sugar level, lipid profile and thyroid status.
BP below 140/90 mm to be maintained.
Now go for a detailed eye examination for any retinopathy or vitreous hemorrhage.
If some problem in eye detected then cure for that problem as soon as possible.
For the eye problem, you may take any multivitamin antioxidant combination also.
If you are satisfied with this interaction mark my response as excellent after closing thread and if you have any other query then please use follow up thread.
With regards.
