Subconjunctival Hemorrhage

Subconjunctival Hemorrhage  in my right eye Being highly myopic and highly astigmatic, I'm compelled to wear toric contact lenses. Glasses are safer but lenses are more comfortable. I've been using them for decades and fortunately, I've encountered no serious complications for long-term use except last week when my right eye got red.  Actually, it's my sister who first noticed redness in the right corner of my right eye. I did not feel any pain or itchiness. I was alarmed when I saw it totally red upon waking up the following morning. I didn't suspect it was a sore eye but I still went to clinic and had it check. It's my first time to be diagnosed with a so called, subconjuctival hemmorrhage . I was advised not to wear lenses for a week or two until the redness disappear completely.
