Does a broken blood vessel in the eye heal by itself?

I poked myself in the far right corner of my eye when taking down my Christmas tree. It is not painful and has not affected my vision, but there is a large blood blister that is bulging slightly and, over the last 2 and a half hours, it has spread around the iris all the way to the other side of my eye. I spoke with my ophthalmologist's office, who prescribed antibiotic drops, but they didn't seem concerned. Said it sounded like I'd broken a blood vessel and it would resolve on its own. It's just very alarming looking.

Hi

Greetings to HealthcareMagic

Apply cold compression, haematoma will subside there no need to be concerned. antibiotic drop is not required. Your explanation like looking to her side of eye is not understood.

It will resolve by its own.

Hi

It can be due to hypertension and nonsustaining constipation can take fiber rich food and Cremafin syrup at bed time. If the cause is cured then broken vessel will seal it self. Non-treatment is required it should resolve by itself.


Take Care
