I **haven't** had this problem, having blood vessels break in my eyes, which is surprising. I've always had a queasy stomach, throw up very easy -- a coughing bout can start it -- and often have had blood vessels break in my eyes and had splotchy spots on the upper part of my face.
I've had several bouts of throwing up since my MVR surgery 6/24/03, but have only had very minor splotches on my face. Went through pretty bad a bout after breakfast Saturday while in St. Louis for a niece's wedding. I could see a few spots, but makeup covered them up.
I had anticipated having an increase in the blood vessels breaking after going on Coumadin, but nothing yet.
Maybe someone else has had a problem similar to yours and has also gone to an ophthalmologist....
