[IP] bloody tears

Subject: [IP] Poetic license?

I recently finished reading a novel in which
there's a minor (though pivotal) character who
is diabetic. He's got retinopathy and because
of this he is crying bloody tears. Could this
really happen, or was the novelist just being,
uh, fanciful?

In retinopathy the blood is inside he eye. the retina is a structure in the
back of the eye and the focus of the lens and cornea so with retinopathy
there is no external blood seen. when you have a retinal hemorrhage it
colors everything you see after the blood starts to breakdown everything
looks like you are viewing it thru cranberry juice. right after the
hemorrhage the blood is too fresh and too dense so you cannot see. yes,
fanciful. spot
