Coughing as : you woke up from anesthesia can cause this. Maybe sore till redness is gone.

Likely ok: A subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs when a tiny blood vessel breaks just underneath the clear surface of your eye.The vision is normal and can occur with rubbing eye, coughing, vomiting or spontaneous.will clear up without much problem .It look bad but as long as vision ok then likely ok,can get checked out by eye doc or primary md

Agreed: it's not attractive and a little touchy, but not a big deal. People can get that if they sneeze to hard.
