Hyposphagma, also known as subconjunctival bleeding, is caused by the breaking of a small vessel, usually after rubbing the eye vigorously. There are patients who are prone to it, such as high blood pressure or those taking anticoagulants or antiplatelet drugs. It is advisable to see an ophthalmologist to assess the degree of bleeding, especially if it is severe enough to affect the cornea

After the eye exam, it is always advisable to take different blood pressure measurements at different times to rule out that the cause is a sudden increase in blood pressure. If you are taking the above medication, a control analysis is sometimes indicated.
