What could be the red ring behind left eye in new born baby?

My newborn (23 days) has a red ring (Blood?) that looks like it is directly behind his left Iris. Kind of like a shadow behind it. Doctor 2 weeks ago said he didn t see anything.. but will be going back to doctors again tomorrow, but very concerned today. Otherwise very healthy delivery and overall health. Eating and pooping and peeing fine. Thank you.

These type of hemorrhage may b normal in newborn and resolve with time. If other things are normal than no need to worry.
