Hard : Hard to tell without a clinical examination, but it could possibly be a spider angioma, which can form after vomiting. Should it persist, read more about treatment options at the link below. I hope that helps.

Subconjunctival hem.: Probably is a subconjunctival hemmorhage from straining--a tiny blood vessel on the surface of the eye broke. Should clear in a week-ten days. see doctor if any pain or visual disturbance..
