Brief Answer:
Can be a case of subconjunctival hemorrhage.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Firstly I'd request to get your blood pressure checked up. If its normal then its most likely subconjunctival hemorrhage. In which case, tiny blood vessels in conjunctiva get ruptured.

Treatment suggested-
Eye drop Moxifloxacin 2 drops thrice daily.
Eye drop ketorolac ( mild anti-inflammatory)- would settle inflammation, 2 drops thrice daily.
For tingling sensation take oral antihistaminic like Allegra 180 mg once. You may need to obtain a prescription from your local doctor for these.

Follow it for 3 days. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Take care!
