Scleral injection

Hello doctors I am a 26 year old male, and i have been have having Scleral injection for almost three weeks now. Its like a straight red band across my eyes. Although i work outside and I am been constantly exposed to the sun, I don't know if this is the cause. I bought some eye drops to clear it out, but it only helps for a few hours then it goes back to "normal". This redness worries me. I truly hope it nothing serious. My question is what cause Scleral infection, and should I worry to much about it?

P.S. I had protected sex with somebody I didn't know to much about. This is about 4 months ago. I tested for various STD s and it came out negative. Can STD s cause redness in the eyes?

Many causes.  Doubt this is related to STD.  See an ophthalmologist.  Find one on AAO. org
