luckily I think it’s past the worst point, but now its at the point of looking somewhat gruesome. It looks likea subconjunctival hemorrhage, from what the internet tells me:
A subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs when a tiny blood vessel breaks just underneath the clear surface of your eye (conjunctiva). The conjunctiva can’t absorb the blood quickly, so you’re left with the equivalent of a bruise, except the blood is trapped under this transparent surface instead of the skin. This may create a rather frightening picture, but a subconjunctival hemorrhage is usually a harmless condition that disappears within 10 to 14 days.
Luckily it doesn’t seem fatal and there is generally no residual change in vision…its still scary, especially for a visual artist.
