It joins the cornea where the white of the eye joins the iris (colored ring).</p> <p>Tiny <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/blood.html/">blood</a> vessels in the conjunctiva sometimes leak when a person sneezes, <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/childs-cough.html/">coughs</a>, throws up, strains, rubs the eye, or receives a blow to the eye. Blood then collects between the conjunctiva and the sclera, leaving a bright red spot on the surface of the eye. This is called a subconjunctival hemorrhage. ("Subconjunctival" means "under the conjunctiva" and "hemorrhage" means "bleeding.")</p> <h3>Keep in Mind</h3> <p>A subconjunctival hemorrhage can look scary, but it doesn't cause pain or harm to the eye. No treatment is usually necessary. The spot may grow larger in the first 24 to 48 hours. Then it fades from red to yellow and disappears as the blood is absorbed back into the body. It usually takes about 1&ndash;3 weeks for the spot to go away completely.</p> <p><em>All A to Z dictionary entries are regularly reviewed by KidsHealth medical experts.</em></p>
