red spot in my 3yr old son's left eye.

Hi,
My son(3yr old) has a red spot in the white part of the left eye.When I asked him did he do anything to his eye,he doesn;'t tell me much.The only thing I can make is he was playing with bubbles and I observed this spot only after that.He doesn't seem to have pain or itching.He seems pretty fine.But I'm really worried if it could be something dangerous.It would be great if someone could answer my question and suggest me what to do.

It's unlikely dangerous, often a broken blood vessel. You can call your pediatrician or ophthalmologist tomorrow to see if he/she wants to have you come in for an look.

Many mechanisms. Most common "spontaneous subconjunctival hemorrhage" which you can read about using search and archives.

i have a red spot on my left eye its been there for about 10 days but there is no pain irritatiion or vision problem,i assume its a subconjunctival hemorrhage but it seems now like the color of red is fading a little but also looks like it has spread a little.Just wandering if this is normal when healing or should it be cleared up by now.
