Subconjunctival haemorrhage: my eye is suddenly red after sneezing!

A subconjunctival haemorrhage has a very scary and confronting presentation which involves the pooling of blood below beneath the conjunctival layer of the eye. From the outside, there is a very red and bloody eye, but the patient may not even notice any symptoms or pain at all. Subconjunctival haemorrhage is a common and spontaneous condition and may result from either coughing, straining, vomiting, eye surgery, or recent ocular or head trauma.

Usually, a subconjunctival haemorrhage will resolve within 1-2 weeks by itself. Tear supplements and ocular lubricants can be provided to reduce ocular irritation.

It is important that you book a consultation with your optometrist if you see a pink/red eye to screen for other complications, if present. You can book an eye examination with us by contacting 9728 7288.
