Thanks for the query.

It is very unusual for the eye to bleed spontaneously, unless the eye was injured in some way during sleep.

Please confirm that the source of bleeding was the eye.

What is the condition of your eyes now? How is your vision?

Do get back to me with more details.

Best regards,
Dr.Mihir Shah
