subconjunctival hemorrhage. The conjuctiva is the thin, moist, transparent membrane that covers the white part of the eye.
Underneath the conjunctiva lies nerves and small blood vessels, these are small and barely seen. They are fragile and when they break they result in a subconjuctival hemorrhage.
