My daughter hit her head and her eyes bleed. I cannot have access to an eye specialist since it is a weekend in my country. I want to know how dangerous can this be. What caused the eye to bleed? What else can I do until Monday when I take her to an eye specialist?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Kindly tell me is the blood coming out of her eye or is it collected in the white part of her eye known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage. A picture of her eye would have been very helpful.
If blood is oozing out of her eye, which is very less likely, kindly immediately rush her to an ophthalmologist or an emergency room. In the second situation, which is most likely the case, as long as her vision is not affected you do not have to worry from her eyes point of view.
But, the main concern should be the head injury. If the injury was so severe to cause a subconjunctival hemorrhage, it means the force was large. So, kindly consult a neurosurgeon and rule out a head injury cause it might appear late and we should not take any chances.
