OZZY OSBOURNE Bursts Blood Vessel In His Eye

January 24, 2019

Ozzy Osbourne says that he coughed so hard that he burst a blood vessel in his eye.

The BLACK SABABATH singer posted a picture of his blood-red eye to his social media, along with the following caption: "Coughed so hard I burst a blood vessel in my eye."

According to the Mayo Clinic, "a subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs when a tiny blood vessel breaks just underneath the clear surface of your eye (conjunctiva). The conjunctiva can't absorb blood very quickly, so the blood gets trapped. You may not even realize you have a subconjunctival hemorrhage until you look in the mirror and notice the white part of your eye is bright red."

A subconjunctival hemorrhage is usually a harmless condition that disappears within two weeks or so.

Last October, Osbourne contracted a staph infection that required him to have surgery on his hand and forced him to cancel several shows.

The European leg of Ozzy's "No More Tours 2" is scheduled to kick off on January 30 in Dublin. The trek is being billed as the 70-year-old singer's official farewell to more than five decades of touring.

"No More Tours 2" is a reference to Ozzy's 1992 "No More Tours" trek, which marked the first time the singer announced the end of his days as a touring artist. The tour name was a pun based on the title of his then-most recent solo album, "No More Tears". Ozzy returned to action three years later and has been on the road ever since.
