BLOOD ON THE WHITE PART OF THE EYE.

Okay, thank you for that. Is there any chance that you could send a digital photograph of your eye?

I AM AT WORK AND HAVE NO CAMERA OR SKYPE AVAILABLE

In all probability you have what is referred to as a sub conjunctival hemorrhage. These occur spontaneously and generally or without pain or any affect on your vision. As long as you don't have pain or loss of vision it is probably going to clear without any difficulty. These conjunctival hemorrhages often take a week or 10 days to completely clear. They are very much like a bruise under the skin, but on the surface of the eye can look pretty alarming. However if you have any significant pain or loss of vision you should see an ophthalmologist. I hope that answers the question to your satisfaction, but if you have anything else you would like to ask please feel free to do so now. Otherwise you have my very best wishes. Thank you for allowing me to help today.
