Broken Blood Vessel by eye

Well I haven’t read this one before. . . This morning I looked in the mirror and low and behold I look like I have a black eye on the inside corner of my right eye. Not painful. no swelling, just boldly PURPLE. I don’t remember any trauma and I know it wasn’t there when I went to bed last night.

So I google - good and bad. BUT I came across an article that said a broken blood vessel near the eye could be caused by an irritated facial nerve. God knows I have those!

Second surgery scheduled for Monday. Prayers gratefully accepted.

Off to the eye Dr!

You guys are the best! Thanks:)

So the eye Dr. said it was def broken blood vessel. She felt it was caused by Eagles causing circulation issues and she was glad I wasn’t putting surgery off.


That’s a worry but very glad that your surgery is booked for Monday! Prayers & hugs…

Wow, mine never actually burst but they were angry looking like this a lot prior to surgery (much better now). Interesting to know what your eye doctor said! I thought it was related to the nerve involvement in my face but my doctors disagreed with me. image image


All this vascular eye information is very interesting & a good addition to the body of symptoms we already have.

Thank you redbird & sljlash for sharing what you’ve learned!

Thinking of you! I’m sure you’re running around packing. Your drive is tomorrow? Then Monday is the halfway point of your journey! :heart:
