In brief: Usually
Mild hyphema may heal with complete resolution but more severe hemorrhages or complicated hyphema may not.
You have to see an ophthalmologist who can examine the eye and counsel you appropriately.

A secondary complication from hyphemas is the potential development of glaucoma, so continue your eye follow ups indefinitely.

In brief: In most cases
Yes, in most cases.
The bleeding resolves on its own as it breaks down. This can be helped along with steroid and dilating drops to prevent complications. In severe cases, the blood cells will block the drainage system of the eye causing an increase in pressure. This may require the blood to be drained flushed out through a small corneal incision. High pressure causes glaucoma and vision loss.
