Hi, welcome to HealthcareMagic

The eye injury would have caused subconjunctival hemorrhage, which will resolve spontaneously. By Monto test, I hope you meant mantoux test. This is a test done to detect Tuberculosis exposure/infection. It is a non specific test and is positive for most people in places like India, and 3wks after BCG immunization. It doesn't necessarily suggest active infection. As long as there are no symptoms of active infection, a positive mantoux test can be ignored.
