I have a red spot that suddenly appeared within a matter of 30 minutes on my cornea last night and I'm concerned as to what it is and how it happened!

In brief: Red spot on eye

Do you mean a red spot on the white part of the eye or on the clear central cornea? Is there pain? Change in vision or loss of vision? History of recent injury? Do you wear contact lenses? If the problem is truly on the cornea, do not use your contact lenses & see your eye doctor as soon as possible.
If on white area & no symptoms, no danger & will resolve 10 days or so.
