Left eye very red, please help!

Hi. My white of my left eye became red all of a sudden. It doesn't hurt or itch, and m vision is normal.

But it is very red(bloodshot). Is it an eye infection? What could it be? I went to a doctor and she gave me eye drops, but it doesn't seem to be helping.

If you've not suffered a knock, then infection is likely but it's very difficult to determine without analysis of the tears from that eye. If no improvement in 3 days, you should contact the/a doctor again.

It could be a broken blood vessel--I woke up with one that looked horrible but no pain. Opthamologist said just alternate moist heat/cold packs. If it was an infection, I think there would be a crusty discharge or swelling.
