Good morning doctor, I want to ask 2 days ago my eyes are bleeding in the white area of the eye but only a small line, the next day it is getting bigger in the lower area … and I have brought a doctor, the doctor said it was okay and gave drops. .But the red in my eyes is getting bigger already almost to the black eyeball .. is that not a problem doctor? I’m afraid to disturb my eyesight

We understand the concerns that you feel.
The white eyeball is also called the eye sclera which is directly related to the conjunctiva of the eye. If there is a change in color to red, generally the condition can be caused by irritation, infection of the eye due to viruses or bacteria, trauma due to foreign objects that enter the eye, dry eyes, to more serious eye disorders such as glaucoma.
You do not need to worry, bleeding in the sclera or conjunctiva will not reach the cornea of the eye, unless there are other findings from a physical examination by a doctor that leads to more serious eye disorders. Conjunctivitis (infection of the conjunctiva) or scleritis (infection of the sclera), irritation or dry eyes will not interfere with your vision. Visual function can be disrupted if there is an injury to the cornea due to chronic eye infections, eye trauma, friction due to excessive rubbing of the eye, pretigium (growing new tissue in the eye sclera) or due to refractive abnormalities such as nearsightedness and nearness.
All you have to do is avoid rubbing your eyes, protecting your eyes from dust or other impurities from the environment by using glasses, providing sterile eye drops (artificial tears) can help relieve the symptoms of eye irritation and dry eyes. Avoid using contact lenses and administering drugs other than the doctor who examined you.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
