Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to healthcare magic!
The red eye without pain is mostly due to localized cause in the conjuctiva, the thin membrane cover of the eye.
It may be due to a fractured capillary, due to deficiency of platelets or disorder in their function.
Please get a Complete blood count and Peripheral Blood Smear detailed study.
it would be worth while to get examined by a physician particularly because the problem has been recurrent.
I hope you would get benefited with my advise.
Wish you a good health.
