In brief: Bright Red spot

Is a sub conjunctival hemorrhage and is completely benign in the absence of trauma or unless frequently recurring or accompanied by easy bruising.
It could take a week or more to go completely away.

In brief: Don't worry

It sounds like subconjunctival hemorrhage, which is bleeding under the surface layer of the eye.
It can look very red, but should only give a little irritation and not affect the vision. It can happen from a sneeze or cough, to people on blood thinners, and many times without any cause.
