Ophthalmologist 's  Response
If your vision is un-disturbed and there is no pain in the eye, then it is probably just a harmless blood clot on the surface of the eye. The skin and tissues around the eye are very fragile and a minor trauma like this one can lead to condition like your. Because the tissue is loose in nature, the blood tends to collect there. Hence it increases in the first couple of days and then reduces over about ten days. You can use a lubricating eyedrop 3 - 4 times daily meanwhile.
