Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that you are having a bright red spot in the corner of eye.
This is probably subconjunctival hemorrhage.
This will resolve by 1-2 weeks and no treatment is required.
Though commonly subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs secondary to injury it can occur spontaneously in conditions like hypertension.

If the problem is recurrent you need to undergo evaluation by physician to rule out hypertension and other systemic problems.

Otherwise no need to worry you can continue with your vacation.

If possible do send a photo of the affected eye so that I can confirm the diagnosis for you.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards
