Petechial hemorrhages of the conjunctiva (little tiny bleeds) are associated with conditions of great stress or even extremely high blood pressure. In forensics we often see it in cases of mechanical asphyxiation like strangulation, in which case there will be marks on the neck or something within the larynx blocking air flow.

These are a set of antique ocular prosthetics dating back to as early as WWII and would fit nicely in any gothic, steampunk, or generally spooky collection of doodads.
I’ve kept one of the glass eyes for myself to use in charms in relation to enlightenment, clairvoyance, and intrinsic knowledge.

Eyes have now joined the long list of objects that can be printed in 3D, thanks to the ingenuity of British designers. London-based Fripp Design and Research collaborated with Manchester Metropolitan University to produce prosthetic eyes that are barely distinguishable from the real thing. What’s more, they can produce around 150 in an hour at a fraction of the cost of eyes made by hand, the method currently used to craft them. Hand-painted eyes take a very long time to produce and cost around £3,000 each. Fripp Design can make them for £100. It also prints flexible facial prosthetics to support the eye.
