Still worried about broken blood vessel

Thank you so much for your reponse to my first question.I asked you if its normal to have a broken blood vessel after eye surgery. I had a pigmented lesion removed. Well, im still concered because the red spot that remains is exactly where the lesion was and its been two weeks and it still looks really red like I just had surgery. After my surgery, half of my eye was red and every day a little bit went away but this same spot. It hasnt even gotten lighter or smaller. I went for my post op ck last friday and they gave Vigamox,Lotemax, and Systane. Will this help? I know you told me it takes 4-6 weeks to clear but all the red has cleared except this spot. Im afraid its going to be perminent. How long before I know if its going to be perminent?

i doubt your redness will be permanent.  but if it does happen to be permanent, no there is really no good way to remove it.
