As your doctor advised, it's most probably a subconjunjunctival hemorrhage (bleeding from small vessels underneath the conjunctiva - white part of the eye). It can happen during an eye surgery as we use small instruments during the surgery which can cause this bleeding. Not to worry as it takes about 7-10 days for the blood to resolve on its own.
