    Do you mean his eye went very red and bloodshot or the eye was literally bleeding? Either way if he suddenly lost his vision then he needs an urgent appointment at a hospital eye clinic.

    Is he on blood thinners like aspirin or warfarin?  Any history of trauma?

    A prompt visit to an eye doctor would be advisable.

    Hi

    Yes his eye was actually bleeding. Blood was running out of it down his face

    I rang his GP who said go to your optician.

    I have had him at the opticians who say it is impossible for the eye to bleed and it must be coming from his nose.

    He said if it happens again to contact his GP straight away.

    Not a lot of help really. I am quite concerned

    He has not had any injury to his eye or face

      Hospitals take eyes very seriously and should have an eye casualty department. I phoned the local hospital last month when I had a problem that was beyond the scope of the opticians. A sister from the department phoned me back for details and gave me an appointment for the next day.
