Subconjunctival Hemorrhage

Patient sustained blunt trauma to the head. Echymosis is evident in the lid and around the eye. Medially, there is a small subconjunctival hemorrhage. In the absence of fracture or any ocular damage (which would require additional treatment), the subconjunctival hemorrhage should resolve on its own within a matter of weeks.
