Red Spot in Eye
Doctor I have been sleeping poorly for a few days now, and have been spending most of my time working on my smartphone. This gives me visible red nerves in my left eye. Few minutes back, I noticed a red spot on one of the nerves, near the pupil. After about 10 minutes it suddenly disappeared. What should I do about it?
