Bloodshot eye after fall(becoming worse)

Hi, a friend of mine fell down a flight of stairs last wednesday and ever since, her right eye has become increasingly bloodshot.It started off just in the corner,now the whole side of the white part of her eye is just completely blood red and it has now reached the iris. Her other eye is also starting to become blood shot, but not nearly as bad. Im really worried about her but she refuses to go to the doctor as she says they are just going to give her eye drops (which she has already). Is there anything else she can do or should she go to the doctor, how severe is this?

Thanks, Blue

Blue, if it keeps on getting worse the best would be for her to see her doctor. In the meantime she can try applying cold packs to the eye. Good luck.
