What causes broken blood vessels in the eyes after a hemorrhagic stroke?

My husband had a hemorrhagic stroke in Dec. and with the help of OT, ST, and PT he is doing well. One of my concerns is in the past few days he has had numerous broken blood vessels in his eyes and getting big bags under his eyes that seem to be getting dark circles. Is this of any concern?

Is there any burning in the eyes? Is there any infection? Is there any facial nerve palsy?

There are many causes such as:
1. Thrombocytopenia due to anti platelet drugs
2. Bell’s palsy
3. Conjunctivitis
4. Excessive straining/rubbing/vomiting
5. Use of anticoagulants drugs like coumarin
6. Trauma

So, you need to evaluate the causes and investigations require like platelet count, liver function tests, clotting factors profile et cetera. Please consult your treating doctor, he/she will examine and treat him accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
