Red spot in pupil of eye, appears to be growing, small lines moving from it

I just noticed that around a week ago, I have what could be called a small red spot on the left of my pupil on my right eye. I noticed that when I covered it up, it decreased in size and became almost non-visible. I work in front of a computer often, and recently I think it appears to be growing. Small lines moving from it. I m unable to go to the doctors due to insurance reasons. I also seem to have what appears to be a cut?(line) going across my other eye.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query..
Where is the red spot actually? On the cornea or pupil?
Pupil is an aperture inside the eye and there can't be any spot on the pupil.
Are you seeing the spot on the eye ball?
It could have been a congestion ( enlargement of the blood vessels creating redness) because of an ongoing inflammation.
Consult an ophthalmologist for a better diagnosis and advice..
Don't worry. It appears to be a minor problem only..
Take care.
