Broken Blood Vessel in Eye

Three weeks ago I had a broken blood vessel in my right eye.  I went to the eye doctor and he examined it and said it was fine and normal  He gave me some steroid eye drops for some itching.  Today I have another one in the left eye with some slight pain.  What could be causing this again?  I do not wear contacts.  When I called the eye doctor's office they seem to think it was fine and did not need to see me.

Thanks.

If you have not had a comprehensive medical eye exam by an Ophthalmologist (a MD that takes care of the eye) then I suggest you do so. Find one near you at www.aao.org  however most broken blood vessels on the surface of the eye (subconjunctival hemorrhages) are not serious and do often reoccur. Yesterday in my clinic I saw two people that have had 4 in the last 6 months
