| | Tiny "Hemorrhage" at Eye Exam
When I went to the opthalmologist last month for my eye exam, he told me my eyes are healthy except I have a hemorrhage in my eye (as it cannot be seen on the outside) that's as small as a speck. He said he doesn't know the cause but possibly from my high blood pressure which is controlled by medicine but when I get particularly afraid or nervous I know my BP goes up drastically in spite of the medicine. I'm 50 years old. Anyone know what kind of hemorrhage this is and whether or not occasional short periods of very high blood pressure (170+) can cause this? Any info is greatly appreciated. I can't find a thing about it in google, as all those sites involve shaken babies, or diabetes patients, neither of which I've ever been. Thanks for any information.
