i have just noticed a red blood spot about 1mm in diameter on the white of my eye. my eye does not seem to hurt too much, but i feel my left eye little bit dryier than my right eye(that may be a separate thing). what causes these blood spots and are they serious? i am a 24 yr old female.

This is probably a subconjunctival hemorrhage...They usually clear up in 7 to 10 days....They are sometimes caused by medication...Hope this helps...Take care...
