    Your hyphema may be caused by the invisible bacterium. You need to use the eye drops with anti-inflammation to help you get rid of the bacterium. You should better choose the good brand of the eye drops which own the high ability to kill bacterium. You could also use the warm compress to help you reduce the hyphema. This is the good home remedy way. You could also take the medical way to help you treat this. This way is more scientific.

    Hyphema can be cured by some treatments which all aim to minimize bleeding inside the eyes, corneal blood staining and optic nerve atrophy. To treat hyphema, you can elevate your head when you are sleeping. Keep your head elevated by 45 degrees from the bed in order to avoid vision obstruction and improve resolution. An eye patch and shield can also work. You should wear an eye shield while you are sleeping, for this will protect your eyes from further bleeding in case of unconscious rubbing during the sleep. In the daytime, you need to wear an eye patch to protect your affected eyes. Surgery can also be applied if the hyphema is not responsive to medication. If the hyphema gives you painful sensation, you can use acetaminophen other than aspirin and ibuprofen.

    A hyphema may happen initially after a trauma to the eye. If a person gets a hyphema, he or she may suffer from some more severe bleeding in the following three to five days. The hyphema is usually blunt or closed trauma, which can be the result of an athletic injury from a flying object such as a stick, a ball, or the incidental hitting from the elbow of another player. Once a person gets hyphema, he or she should in time go to the ophthalmologist or an emergency department for treatment. After coming back home, the patient should rest in bed with the head of the bed elevated as much as the patient can tolerate. The patient should not engage in any strenuous activity in case of getting more harm to the eyes. In addition, the patient should not take any medicines containing aspirin which will promote bleeding. The medicine that is banned also includes nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, such as naproxen (Aleve), ibuprofen (Motrin), or many other arthritis medications. Besides, the patient can place drops in the eyes three to four times a day or exactly as prescribed by your doctor such as eye drops of 1% atropine as well as steroid drops that is intended to fight inflammation and pain. Covering the eye with a shield can also protect the eyes from further injury. Sometimes there can be an occasional increase in pressure caused by the red blood cells obstructing the meshwork of the eye, making the normal flow of liquid through the eye interrupted increasing the pressure in the eyes. If the pressure of the eyes does increase, certain medicine, such as a beta-blocker, may be delivered through eye drops into the eye to help keep the eye pressure back into a normal level.
