Harmless: Generally speaking, the sudden appearance of a blood red spot on the white of the eye(sclera) is due to harmless bleeding from very tiny blood vessels that cross the surface of the sclera.Minor rubbing of the eye can cause
them to bleed,but the blood is trapped between the sclera and a transparent film of tissue called the conjunctiva (think plastic Saran wrap)>eye turns red. No Rx needed.
