Dear ladybug3162,

A reddish appearance in the white part of the eye may be known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage. This may occur without any injury or following a sneeze, cough or straining such as occurs with heavy lifting.  It may be associated with high blood pressure, diabetes and/or drugs which cause diminished clotting such as blood thinners Coumadin, plavix and aspirin, or an injury to the eye.
