Blood shot eyes are usually due to subconjunctival haemorrhage. There is rupture of small blood vessels in the white of the eyes. This could be due to trivial injury,excessive coughing,sneezing,those on anti-platelet tablets, somrtimes without any cause too.

This generally heals within 10-12 days, may change colour to dark red and eventually disappear.

It is usually painless. There might be some discomfort though.

As of now Tab.Paracetamol 500mg twice a day will relieve the pain.
