Posted by: Jenny, Saturday, July 27, 2013, 4:30am
I've had a recurring bloodshot (right) eye for several months. At first I thought it was due to an accidental poke, but it keeps coming back, more and more frequently. I've upped my  vit C and D
and mostly get good sleep. The weather is very cold at the moment, but I can't believe that is it.
I have an appointment with an eye specialist in a fortnight, but would like some input from other people's experience if possible. I've read two entries in the archives, but they don't particularly help.
Thanks. 8)

Hope it comes good soon?! When Phil had a burst blood vessel in his eye the Dr told him it would come good by itself... Of course extra Vit C & other circulatory supps can't hurt eh?

extra vit c is not for all blood typs????   what kind matters also..

Taking ocubright would be more long term..

Bllod shot is not bleading.. it is different.. my friend has it for about 1 year.. after I made him aware of it several times he stopped taking medicine for somer other thing.. fogot what .. but he looked up side effects and found blood shot eyrs as one of them.. you might look up all medas and vitamins you take to begin with...

then again.. do you MUST wait a month to get on appointment?  

But as I remember, for the year my friend had blood shot pink around the Iris, instead of white, his eye doctors and my regulart doctors had no ideas...  

good luck.. do not stress / stress weakens all the boy no need to add worry..  you will figure this out for your self.. no doubt in my mind about that.. !!!

no dry eye? nor dry mouth? not more tears?

I had bloodshot eyes last year.  It was an exceptionally dry year, plus I changed jobs and was working in a somewhat dry environment.  I went to 2 different optometrists, no.1 told me it was dry out so use liquid tears.  That didn't help.  Went to another optometrist, ends up I had some scratches on my cornea which needed some antibiotics.  1 day later after starting the drops, no more blood shot eyes.

Hi Jenny,
Let me know where in eye it is bloodshot as different parts of the eye and the type of marking can mean a great deal in Iridology.  Please feel free to send a picture if you can and I'll see if I can help out.  I have also recommended Connectivar for this very problem and it has worked wonders.  My email is info@right4yourtypenz.com and you will find Connectivar on our site http://www.right4yourtypeau.com

Amazone, what are opcs please?
Thanks Possum, hope your Phil is ok now.
Chloe, good reference thanks.
Goldie and Lola, ocubright sounds good.
Goldie, re the appointment, I luckily got a cancellation for what is now 2 weeks away, otherwise it would have been 3 months waiting.
Yes, dry eyes, yes I need more hydration, but not more tears.
Jeanb...I agree about dry eyes and have just started using "Bion tears". I suspect that the poke I got in March ( from a violin bow), might have scratched
the cornea, and I am hoping for a simple antibiotic to heal the possible recurrent infection.
Kiwi..it is in the white of the outer part of the right eye, and the blood drains down and pools under the lower eyelid; it generally takes a week or so to dissipate, then comes back a few weeks later.
I already order other goods from your site, so I will do so for Connectivar. Thank you.

great answers all.. now one to remember..  IF ever you have a dark or black spot in the vision part of your eyes, either one then immediatly sleep sitting up.  You might havbe weak blood vessels and if one of them bursts on the inside the vision field then you do want the blood to migrate to the bottom as you abserved, and let it pool there out of the way and so avoid sision obstruction.  whaen such happens it takes at least 2 month to clear it up,.. sorry .. but weak vessels are weak every where..

what blood thinners are you taking? what meds have that as a side effect.

what other things are happening in your body? more varicose veins? what other debilitating issues?  look at your self and evaluate. the strength of the vessels all over..

glad you can see the doctor sooner.. all the best.

what diabetes med are you on?

Goldie, I'm not on blood thinners.
I'm on daily 125 micrograms of Thyroxine tablets (possibly measured differently in other parts of the world).
Not on diabetic tablets or insulin as I controlled my diabetes with diet and exercise.

It's wonderful to see you, Jenny!  :D

As you're waiting to see the doctor, consider doing saline eye rinses a couple of times a day.  I have a little glass eye cup for washing my eyes.

Thanks Victoria,
I remember those little eye cups..I grew up with one. I am enjoying using a product called bion tears once per day and will wait for further advice on 13 August from specialist. i haven't had another blood show since I started talking to you all about it, so am hoping that the daily rinsing is assisting the natural healing to take place.

Thanks Goldie,
My eye surgeon today tells me that although the bloodshot eye may have looked pretty shocking, it was actually nothing to be alarmed about, merely a superficial wound caused by the accident with the violin bow four months ago, and probably re-activated at monthly intervals when I accidentally bumped or rubbed the eye during sleep and knocked off the healing scab. So all is well, and the bion tears that I am using are perfectly safe and useful. Good result.

Today I read your healine here the correct way for the first time.. Sooorry.. I read it as blooshot Eyes.. not singular, because I have 2 friends and both their eyes look blooshot. (I think from Lipitor.)  I transpoased what I have seen on them to your post.

I am happy that all is ok and the explanation as simple as all that. :o. Just please no more injuies..  ::)  ... You are a lovely lady and I like your posts! always upbeat and cherful/hopeful.

hope your eye is now ok Jenny, I heard in TCM medicine/healing, eyes relate to the liver, ayurveda - could be pitta imbalance ie too much heat around liver, stomach, small intestine.
some nice cooling foods with greens (leafy and/or herbs) between 10:00am and 2pm, sweet veg raw juice with some apple added around 11am or before breaky if possible, yes... take care of your pitta dosha (ayurvedic / sanskrit language)   early to bed, if possible.
wear some silver jewellery.
cooling natural perfume - sandalwood, jasmine, rose.
get someone to massage your toes and instep part of both feet, foot reflexology treatment good.
