Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It sounds like she has a subconjunctival hemorrhage.
Are you available to chat?
yes. what to do about it?
There is nothing that you need to do....
In the vast majority of cases, sub conjunctival hemorrhage is nothing to worry about. It is usually not a sign of any serious condition but rather is just a small broken blood vessel in the conjunctiva that looks much worse than it really is. No treatment is necessary. Think of a subconjunctival hemorrhage as a bruise. The reason it looks so red (some people say it looks like a piece of raw meat) is that the skin on your eye is very thin so the underlying blood shows through easily. On your arm, for instance, a bruise looks blue/purple because the overlying skin is thick, blocking the red color of the blood. Like a bruise elsewhere a subconjunctival hemorrhage will slowly go away over the course of a couple of weeks. It may spread around the globe some and change colors as it clears. This is nothing to be concerned about.
Does this make sense to you?
OK, That sounds sensible

Is there anything else I can do for you tonight?
I am very satisified w/ your service. Will this be any more likely in the future since she had this one?
No. Having a subconjunctival hemorrhage once doesn't mean that you are more or less likely to have another in the future....
