Bloody: Usually not...But if you have pain or any decrease in vision, call your eye doctor right away.

Usually No: Subconjunctival hemorrhages are not serious in and of themselves. The cause of repeated hemorages should be investigated as it can be a sign of hypertension, blood clotting disorder, liver problems or other more rare causes.
