Subconjunctival hemorrhage: Treatments Inroduction

Many cases of subconjunctival hemorrhage require no treatment other than monitoring of the condition until it goes away on its own after about a week. It is important to seek prompt medical care if the red patch on the eye does not resolve in this time or if there is a change in vision, eye pain or eye discharge.

Certain underlying causes of subconjunctival hemorrhage or conditions with similar symptoms do require prompt treatment. These include inflammation of the sclera (scleritis), infection, such as conjunctivitis, or eye injury, such as corneal abrasion.

If it is suspected that subconjunctival hemorrhage is related to prescribed blood thinner medication, the doses or types may need to be adjusted as recommended by a physician.
