If there is a conjunctival laceration it may heal on it's own. A deeper scleral laceration will require repair i.e. stitches. Though it is more likely to be conjunctival laceration, it needs to be confirmed by seeing an ophthalmologist.
Since, you are not sure how you got this, other possibility could be scleritis. You will need steroid drops for this. In severe cases, oral steroids may also be given. Even though, it's new year's eve you should try to see an ophthalmologist. Thanks and best wishes.

You are most welcome. To read about scleritis in detail, you can follow this link - http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/809166-overview. As you are unsure about how you developed the symptoms, I feel this to be more likely.
If you had developed a cut from trauma you would have fet pain at that point of time. However, I am not ruling it out totally. Even if there is a cut it is more likely to be conjunctival i,.e superficial. However, a deeper scleral cut needs to be ruled out. Another possibility could be a sub-conjunctival hemorrhage which usually resolves on it's own and no treatment is required. However, in this condition pain is not present only a ruptured blood vessel(marked redness) is seen. It's important that you confirm the diagnosis by seeing an ophthalmologist. Thanks and a very Happy New Year to you.
