In brief: Yes

Subconjunctival hemorrhages resolve without problems.
Steps can be taken to look for a cause if they are recurrent.

In brief: Usually

The vast majority of conjunctival hemorrhages are caused by dry eyes which can be helped with artificial tears.
Sometimes, the bleeding can be worsened by use of anticoagulants such as Coumadin (warfarin) or plavix. Other causes include uncontrolled blood pressure and bleeding disorders. If you have headaches or other symptoms, please see your ophthalmologist right away.
