Taking vitamin C is recommended to help protect the cells from further damage. It will also help to repair the broken blood vessel by encouraging the production of collagen. Vitamin C will also help strengthen the immune system and help keep any further infections from developing. Also, be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Although this will not take away the broken blood vessel in the eye, it is always beneficial to drink fluids to keep your body as healthy as possible.
There are some rare cases that a broken blood vessel is caused by an external infection. If this is the case, the external infection should be taken care of immediately. You may want to consider seeing a doctor to see if antibiotics are necessary to treat the infection. If this is the case, the doctor may also prescribe an antibiotic cream or drops for the eye area. This will help to reduce infection and although will not make the broken blood vessel go away any quicker, will help to keep symptoms minimal and not become more serious.
More often than not, broken blood vessels in the eye are nothing at all to worry about. Everyone will more than likely experience a broken blood vessel in the eye at some point in their lives and they should not be cause for any alarm. Broken blood vessels will go away in two or three weeks and you should see improvement after only a few days. Broken blood vessels in the eye are no different from broken blood vessels anywhere else in the body. Bruises on the body usually fade to a light brown with time, and blood vessels in the eye will do the same. You will notice that they start off bright red, but eventually fade away with just a hint of color left at the end.
If you’ve got a broken blood vessel in the eye it’s really nothing to worry about. This is not a serious medical condition. It should go away on its own with time and is truly not cause for unnecessary concern.
