Answer

Thanks for your Question

This is called subconjunctival hemorrhage. It is self limited condition which means it will go away by itself without any treatment and there is nothing to worry about. If you have the feeling of foreign body sensation or burning sensation, you can use lubricant eye drops.

You should see an eye doctor if there are:

1- Recurrent attacks of it or it doesn't go away within 2 weeks 

2- Pain

3- Eye discharge

4- Blurry vision

5- Eye floaters

6- Bleeding from nose or gum
