# Hello sir.
Since there is no problems right now there is no reason to worry.
Most probably you had blood accumulation under white of eye or subconjunctival hemorrhage.
You might also have had bleeding inside of eye called hyphema which got resolved by own.
If the second one was there,I advise you to get your eye pressure measured and also get gonioscopy test done to rule out angle recession.There is always a chance of secondary glaucoma or eye pressure rise after trauma to eye and it requires regular eye checkup.
Hope it helps.
