It will clear up in 1-2 weeks. I forgot the exact medical term for this condition.

Basically it's caused by a sudden increase in blood pressure which causes some of the weaker veins in your eye to burst.

Airplane pressure increases
Drinking
Stress
Straining your eyes when reading small font

All can lead to this.

Again

Don't do anything, it will heal itself. What you've already done to your eyes was not a very good idea. Your just gonna have to ride this one out.

it went away on it's own though.

Does it look something like this?:



If it does then it's nothing to worry about - as ThrowedInDaGame said - although it's got nothing to do with straining your eyes while reading. Itprobably happened when you bent over and coughed or something.

The discomfort you are feeling is pressure - the blood is trapped between layers in your eye so it feels strange. It will go away in a week or so. One thingyou can do to make it go away quicker is to put a warm cloth over your (closed) eye for a few minutes a couple of times a day - that just dilates the bloodvessels and makes it clear a bit quicker.
