Hello,A sudden painless bloodshot eye is very likely to be due to a sub conjunctival hemorrhage or SCH. It is due to ruptue of a small blood vessel in the white part of the eye . This can happen due to sudden bout of coughing or forceful sneezing / subtle trauma or even spontaneously without any apparent reason also. Usually it resolves naturally without any treatment over 7 to 10 days .For soothing effect lubricating eye drops can be put , 1 drop 4 times a day.In case there are other eye symptoms such as pain/ watering or discharge/ reduced vision then do get the eye ecamined by an ophthalmologist for a closer look.
