Causes of a Red Spot on Eye
Treatment of Subconjunctival Hemorrhage
Medical treatment is usually not necessary for subconjunctival hemorrhage. If you are concerned, you can get your eye doctor to do a routine exam. A doctor will usually give you a routine exam to make sure there aren't any underlying causes, then may possibly recommend a cool compress until it goes away. However, if you feel pain, experience loss of vision, your eye swells, your eye is discharging fluid/liquid, you see blood on your pupil, or you are constantly tearing up/crying, you may have an underlying cause for the red spot. Your doctor will be able to determine if it is a minor cause or something worse.
It usually takes about a week for subconjunctival hemorrhage to clear. If the spot is large, it will take a little longer. Don't take asprin while you have subconjunctival hemorrhage because it can make the bleeding worse. During the healing process, the spot can change colors just as a bruise on your skin would. It can go from red, to brown, to purple, to yellow. If your eye feels a bit irritated, you can use artificial tears to help ease it. If your eye doesn't return to normal after about two to three weeks or you have other bleeding or bruising elsewhere on your body, see a doctor immediately.
