As a Theologian, I am interested in understanding other people’s beliefs. I was particularly interested in understanding the different beliefs about a broken blood vessel in the eye years ago.
My roommate had had an eye injury that caused a broken blood vessel in his eyes. He was hiding it from his parents, but unfortunately, his step-mum visited, and she saw it.
To our surprise, she was impressed, saying her son was finally getting a breakthrough. Her beliefs made me research more by reading the Bible and articles and consulting Theologians and spiritual people.
So, last month a lady in our online diverse beliefs forum started a conversation about divine messages, saying she knew she was getting divine messages when her eye had a broken blood vessel.
Many people asked questions about the beliefs, and she asked for any well-informed person to help her explain her beliefs. Since I had done in-depth research, I helped.
So let’s get into the spiritual meaning of Broken Blood Vessels in the eye.
Although the Bible does not mention any spiritual meanings regarding a broken blood vessel in the eye, different people believe that it means there is going to be a breakthrough. Other people suggest that it is a bad omen, and it means there is going to be death and challenges. However, many different cultures hold different beliefs about a broken blood vessel in the eye.
Join me in this article as I write about the medical causes of a broken blood vessel in the eye. I will also discuss the spiritual meanings of a broken blood vessel in the eye.
Read on to find out more.
What is the medical cause for a broken blood vessel in the eyes?
According to Doctors, a broken blood vessel in the eyes is called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, and it is caused by the following;
- Violent coughing. Although the exact cause of a broken blood vessel in the eye is yet to be discovered, doctors say that when you are caught violently, you can break the vessels.
- Powerful sneezing that strains your vessels
- Rubbing your eyes roughly
- Head injuries or infections
- Eye injuries or infections
- Wearing contact lenses
- Certain prescribed medicines can also cause broken blood vessels. For example, medicine for cancer, the interferon.
Doctors further suggest that there are risk factors that can lead to one having a broken blood vessel in the eye. People who are elderly, 65 years and above, are the ones who are more likely to get broken blood vessels in their eyes.
Doctors say that if they especially have other medical conditions like diabetes and heart disease, they are more likely to suffer from it.
Also, doctors point out that people who use constant lenses are also at risk of getting their eye blood vessels broken. Contact lenses mostly cause disease that affects the conjunctiva and makes it dry, which increases friction.
The friction causes inflammation which leads to broken blood vessels. Lastly, people who have undergone eye surgery are most likely to have broken blood vessels.

Historic Symbolism of Broken Blood Vessel in Eye
Historically, a broken blood vessel was associated with an imbalance of sanguine energy. The broken blood vessel in the eye is found in the writings written during Pythagoras’s time.
It was found under the humoral theory in medicine. It assigns the physical and body parts to one of the many humors. Blood and air fall under a sanguine heart. From here, many believe that historically, a broken blood vessel in the eye is associated with sanguine energy.
However, the Bible does not mention a broken blood vessel in the eye, but the sciences give everyone information about this condition as a disease.
Therefore as Christians, we cannot find any history in the Bible about this condition and use it for spiritual interpretations of symbolism.
You should consider just seeing a doctor and not depending on your own understanding.
