Why is eye all of a sudden red with little white spot on like iris I think?

Burst blood vessel: I think you are describing a "subconjunctival hemorrhage" which is when a small blood vessel bursts under cornea, or white part if the eye. These can be caused by trauma, a cough or sneeze, straining to have a bm, or by surgery. They are benign and should by entirely without symptoms, i.E painless, no discharge or problems with vision. If you have any of those, see your doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more

My daughter has a whitish spot on iris of her eyeball with redness in sclera area and some pain

Corneal ulcer: The iris is inside the eye and rarely changes except to dilate and contract. The cornea, the clear window at the front of the eye, can develop an ulcer spot (a collection of bacteria) which looks white on top of the iris, causes local redness in the sclera and pain. This can be serious and should be seen by her ophthalmologist. If she is a contact wearer, take them out right away. ...Read more

Have redness in right eye bottom, irritated near construction debris. There a tiny white/yellow spot at bottom of iris, lids a bit swollen. Thoughts?

Possible infection: An exam is essential. As simple as your description is, getting "debris" in your eye opens up a myriad of possibilities. The fact of seeing a Yellow Spot on your cornea indicates either a foreign body with a possible secondary inflammatory or infectious process. Your eyelid has started to swell. You should go to a quick care center or an ophthalmologist to evaluate for treatment to protect eye. ...Read more

I just got ashes in ny eye from a cigarette it dosent hurt and dosent look red well maybe a small spot but im tired. I see clear no problem.?

Probably not: If the ash wasn't smoldering then it would be just like any other foreign body that gets in the eye (like an eyelash). Usually the normal cleansing mechanism of the eye flushes it, sometimes it has to be flushed manually. If you have a sensation of a foreign body then you should be seen so the eye can be flushed properly. Don't rub it, this can scratch the surface of the eye. ...Read more

I have noticed a red spot in my right eye...it was a little itchy prior to this but don't know if its connected. The right eye is slightly red and gla?

Red spot by itself: Is not a big a deal as many red spots together appearing on your eye. Do you know what you were doing prior to it appearing? That's also a good thing to know. What is 'gla'? If your eye is bothering you, it's time to see your eye docto and have it looked under a microsope. (slit lamp exam) so she/he can tell you exactly what's going on. This will give you peace of mind. ...Read more

Had a white spot on the edge of my iris with red on the white of my eye. Felt like something was in my eye and hurt. Now the spot is red? What is it?

Exam: You may have a corneal infiltrate due to something that irritated the cornea. The white color is due to white blood cells, but as this inflammatory process continues, the corneal tissues break down & pain & inflammation increases. The white spot may ulcerated and the adjacent tissues become red, inflamed & hurt. You need to have your eyes examined to institute proper and urgent treatment. ...Read more

What could a Bubbly bump on top of my iris with red spot around it creating a stye on inside of my eyelid be? Could I have something stuck in my eye?

Pingueculum: The pingueculum is a normal structure the eye makes for protection at the open space on either side of the corneal.
