    I have a lot of problems with my eyes, they are painful, blurry, lots of floaters etc. Tonight I noticed I have a red spot in my eye,has anyone ever had this? Its a little scary being I do have painful eyes. Any ideas?

    googled and got:

    subconjunctival hemorrhage

    escape of blood from a vessel

    The types of trauma that can cause these small, delicate blood vessels to rupture include rubbing your eye during sleep, forceful sneezing or coughing, straining when going to the bathroom, and lifting.

    Treatment is usually limited to supportive care such as cool compresses. If there is an associated condition that is causing coughing or sneezing, that should be treated as well. Generally the globe of the eye (eyeball) will fully clear in 7 to 10 days with no treatment.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the info! I'll probably be running this by my doc today just in case, even though its probably ok.

    God Bless
