Subconjunctival Hemorrhage Symptoms

You probably won’t notice any symptoms like vision changes, discharge, or pain. You may only have a scratchy feeling on the surface of your eye.
The red spot may grow over 24 to 48 hours. Then it will slowly turn yellow as your eye absorbs the blood.
Have your Doctor or Optometrist take a look at it as soon as you notice it to ensure it is treated properly.

These hemorrhages often happen when your blood pressure spikes because of:
• Strong sneezing
• Straining
• Powerful coughing
• Vomiting
• Roughly rubbing your eye
• Injury, like having something stuck in your eye

What Is Subconjunctival Hemorrhage?

A subconjunctival hemorrhage is a red spot on your eye caused by a broken blood vessel. It might look scary, but it’s usually harmless. You might not even know that a blood vessel has broken until you look in a mirror.

Your conjunctiva, the clear membrane that covers your eye, has a lot of tiny blood vessels. When blood gets trapped beneath this layer, it’s called a subconjunctival hemorrhage. This doesn’t affect your vision as the blood isn’t inside your eye or your cornea.

Blepharitis Prevention

A few lifestyle changes might help keep blepharitis away.
• Keep your eyelids clean.
• Remove all eye makeup before bed.
• Don’t use eyeliner on the back edges of your eyelids, behind the lashes.
• If you’re in the early stages of treating blepharitis, prevent further irritation by not using makeup.
• Once you start to use it again, replace products that you use in or near your eyelids. They may be contaminated.

Blepharitis is an ocular condition that causes inflammation of the eyelids, typically where the eyelashes grow.
It is difficult to treat but does not cause any harm to the eye sight and it is not contagious.

Pinguecula

A pinguecula (plural pingueculae) is similar to a pterygium, and the two are often confused. However, a pinguecula occurs only on the conjunctiva (the thin, protective membrane that covers the surface of the eye), and will not grow across the cornea.

Pinguecula symptoms
It has similar symptoms to a pterygium. It usually appears as a creamy-coloured or chalky growth on the white of the eye. A pinguecula will also normally occur in the corner of the eye, near the nose, and can affect one eye or both.
Just like a pterygium, a pinguecula can cause irritation, however, a pinguecula cannot grow across the cornea, and therefore will not affect vision. In some cases though, a pinguecula can become a pterygium, involving the cornea.

Causes of pingueculae
Pingueculae generally occur between the ages of 20 and 50. They are also thought to be caused by environmental factors, such as climate, dust and UV light.

Pterygium

A pterygium (plural pterygia) is a wedge-shaped growth of abnormal conjunctival tissue that forms on the eye. While they are benign and fairly harmless, they can extend onto the cornea where they may affect vision.

Symptoms
A pterygium may occur in one eye, or both. Most often they occur in the corner of the eye, close to the nose.
Symptoms also include dry eyes, irritation, inflammation and redness.
If the pterygium extends onto the cornea far enough it can cause blurred vision and can also obscure vision.

Causes
The main cause is UV light from long-term sun exposure. People who live in hot, dry, sunny regions and spend a lot of time outdoors have a higher chance of developing a pterygium than others. The risk is also increased by not wearing sunglasses or a sun hat.
Sports people such as sailors, surfers and skiers also have a high incidence because of the high levels of reflected UV light they encounter.
Pterygia usually occur in people aged 20 to 50, and are more common in men, probably due to an increased likelihood of outdoor work environment.

Amsler Grid: Macular Degeneration Screening

The Amsler grid is a tool that eye doctors use to detect vision problems resulting from damage to the macula or the optic nerve. The damage may be caused by macular degeneration or other eye diseases.
An early diagnosis means early treatment, so it may help to limit or at least slow the vision loss you experience.

Presbyopia is a part of growing older.

Presbyopia is a normal part of the aging process, and we’re all going to have to deal with it sometime after age 40. Whichever option you choose – eyeglasses, contact lenses or surgery – you’ll be able to easily read messages on your phone or a book without any trouble.
If you are beginning to notice signs and symptoms of presbyopia, see an optometrist for an eye exam and consultation regarding the best presbyopia treatment options for you.

Our story...

Welcome to Opticross!

“My personal goal has always been to build life-long relationships with individual patients and their families”.

Back in 2004, Lizelle moved into Fontainebleau, determined to open her own optometry practice to serve her community. On the 1st of July 2004 Opticross Fontainebleau opened its doors to welcome our very first patients, and 15 years later we are still going strong! “Our personalised service” means that Lizelle will never hand you over to another employee, but will personally take you through the full process - from initial eye screening to walking out a happy customer. She also prides herself on personal after care, and uses no less than 4 languages including English, Afrikaans, Zulu and German!

Opticross has since become a household name in the Randburg area. To deliver an even more convenient service we added a second practice in May 2009, located on the first floor in the Randburg Medicross center in Rabie street, Fontainebleau. This practice is headed up by our optometrist Olga Briel.
