Bloodshot eye in high blood pressure. Close-up of the eye of a 58-year-old male patient with a small haemorrhage (bleed) around a pingueculum, caused by high blood pressure. A pingueculum is a yellow-white deposit in the conjunctiva - the membrane lining the inside of the eyelids and covering the exposed part of the eyeball. High blood pressure can cause small blood vessels, such as those in the eyes, to rupture and bleed (haemorrhage).
