      Hi, i had this condition for quite sometime now. i had conjunctivitis on my right eye recently and I've been using the eye drop the doctor gave me. The conjunctivitis is gone but the blood vessels seems to appear on the sclera.I notice a large blood vessel keeps extending from my upper right eye. It's getting longer by the day. Is this serious? Thanks
