blood vessel in eye burst & turned to a blister

3 days ago I had what looked like a semi small blood vessel burst on the outer corner of my eye. I have never had such a thing happen. On day two, it looked like the blood vessel burst and spread. It did not hurt, but bothered me a little.
Now on day 3 the size has increased, and it now looks more like a clear blister that's a little red. The outer part of the blister is now touching my pupil & that part is very red.
Now that it has turned into a blister and touching my pupil it is very uncomfortable & irritating.
Do I need to see a doctor, or will it go away on its own?

A broken external blood vessel on the eye (subconjunctival hemorrhage) is common and not serious however pain in not a part of that problem. If you have pain see an Eye MD.
