That is subconjunctival hemorrhage. It is harmless and should resolve on its own. There are a lot of causes for this, so if this is the first time this is occurring, and there are no other symptoms, then just let it be. Consult an Ophthalmologist if it recurs or there is associated pain or blurring of vision.
That being said, If this occurred after any trauma to the eye, then consult an Ophthalmologist to rule out any other associated damage to the eye even if there are no symptoms.

Hello, I went through your query, it is subconjunctival hemorrhage, cause would be, straining due to coughing sneezing lifting heavy weights, trauma, high blood pressure, some infections, parasites, bleeding disorders or other medical conditions causing bleeding, taking anticoagulants, vit c deficiency, taking aspirin etc,,, for bleeding due to strain no need to do anything lubricating eyes drops or enough. To rule out the other causes you need to visit ophthalmologist.
