The man went to the emergency room of the hospital, but about an hour after the bleeding started, the tears stopped naturally.

The doctor gave the man a diagnosis of 'Haemolacria' for the man. Haemolacria refers to all the symptoms of 'bloody tears' and is thought to be caused by multiple causes, including eye infections and inflammation, or tumors of the lacrimal duct. In some cases, the nosebleed flowed back and tears of blood flowed from the eyes, and when the woman was pinching her nose to stop the nosebleed, the blood that had lost the exit flowed out of her eyes .

As a result of the examination, in this case, a tumor called hemangioma was formed on the eyelids of both eyes of a man. Hemangiomas are caused by the gathering of thickened blood vessels on the skin, and usually appear in newborn infants. The man was prescribed timolol, an eye drop that reduces intraocular pressure, and after that, the symptoms disappeared.
