No; however...: This is called a subconjunctival hemorrhage. While it can look frightening it is not serious and will resolve on its own. While nothing to worry about, it may indicate a deficiency of Vitamin K (found in dark leafy greens and avocado) or bioflavonoids (found in many fruits and vegetables).
