What happens when the corner of the eye appears red with some blood clot?

A corner of my eye is red and the bottom of my eyelid appears to have some blood in it. Had for about 3 days and now around by eyeball hurts. Is this anything to worry about? I was to the eye doctor o Tuesday and she said my eyes looked healthy and that it looked like a broken blood vessel, but it didn t hurt then

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The bleed in the conjunctiva could be because of increased blood pressure or even cough or constipation. It will eventually go away but we need to find the cause. If you have heaviness in the eye, then use artificial tear drops.

Hope it helps.

Recently I got into a motorcycle accident and afterwards I had two very bad black eyes; swollen shut and purple. Now they are gone but they left very bad eye bags underneath my eyes and even when I wear make-up you can see the dark rings. In ten days it will be two months, one month since the swelling died down. What can I do to make them go away? Also, the scars on my knees have very thin skin. If I accidently hit them I noticed there will be a blood clot appear almost immediately. Why is this?

I was shocked to see that my rt eye was full of blood this afternoon when I used the restroom. Mostly in the inside corner of eye and it spread. My eye had been sore after rubbing it, but I had no idea anything happened. 1-2 months ago I woke up with similar situation only it was more from the outside corner, but the same eye. Is this indicative of a serious problem? Thank you in advance
