What medication do I have?

Thank you for the question.
Eyes that are red like blood, without visual disturbances, tenderness, itching, and rubbing are most often caused by subconjunctival bleeding. This condition is actually not directly related to the habit of playing for a long time. But indeed, excessive mobile play can cause tired eyes, thus triggering sufferers to rub their eyes excessively. This excessive rubbing of the eye can cause the blood vessels in the surface of the eye to burst, and there will be complaints as you experience it. Not only that, subconjunctival bleeding can also occur due to other causes, such as increased blood pressure in the eye (for example due to coughing, sneezing, or excessive straining), diabetes, hypertension, blood clotting disorders (such as due to hemophilia or vitamin K deficiency), as well as effects side medications (for example aspirin or blood thinners).
If it is true that the subconjunctivary hemorrhage is the originator of your complaint, this condition is often harmless. Enough to rest your eyes from tiring activities (such as excessive reading, staring at gadgets for too long, or driving long distances), compress the eyes with cold water, drip artificial tears on the affected eyes, and elevate the position of the head during sleep, often these complaints will improve in less than 1 week.
However, if by handling the above your complaints also do not improve for up to 3 days or more, you should check yourself directly to a doctor or ophthalmologist. It is feared, the bleeding you experience arises due to other reasons, for example due to conjunctivitis, uveitis, keratitis, endofthalmitis, trichasis, cellulitis, and so on, which requires further treatment.
Hope this helps ...
