My daughter was playing pick up sticks (kids game) and got hit in the white of her eye by accident. it left a red mark (blood?) but does not seem to be causing my daughter pain. Since the time of contact the blood vessels are visible around the spot where hit (kind of like blood shot eyes). Do we need to go to a professional? Will it heal by itself?
Dr. Dan B. : Hello and thanks for your question. How old is your daughter? Is the pupil in this eye round?
Dr. Dan B. : Unless she is having light-sensitivity, pain, the pupil has changed shape or the vision is changed, then I think this is something that can be treated conservatively right now and possibly use artificial tears 3 to 4 times per day for eye irritation. Does this make sense?

My daughter is almost 5 y.o. I am not sure what you mean by is the pupil in this eye round. I would say yes, if I understand the question. As mentioned, the injury occurred on the white of the eye. We have been asking her if she feels any pain or is having issues seeing, but she says no. Everything seems normal, but given it is the eye I wanted to make sure.
