Sclera of eye is blood red, have heart defect, have palpitations. Related?

I woke up this morning and half of my left eye (just the sclera) is blood red. I have a heart defect (a missing leaflet in a valve) and my cardiologist is about to run a stress echo on me in near future. Been having more heart palpitations than usual this morning too. Is the eye a sign that my heart is getting worse or just unrelated
