What causes red and itching eyes after endoscopy?

My mother just had an endoscopy on Friday. Afterwards svhe developed petechiae on her face. She now has a red eye and her eyes itch. She also woke up today with an open red circle on her circle. Is this all from the endoscopy? My mom is 77 and 5'6". She needs to lose about 30 pounds. Medical history? HBP, vertigo, heart murmur. I'm not sure of the rest.

Hi
May it be due to some strain or allergen.
One should be conservative in treating at this age.
We can advise anti histaminic tab for a few days and watch.
