In brief: Only with time

Subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs when a blood vessel on the eye's surface develops a microscopic tear. Although it heals almost immediately, the blood that leaks out is stuck under the conjunctiva.
The blood will naturally be resorbed and removed by the body, much like a bruise. There is no treatment that can speed this process, which can take up to a few weeks.

In brief: Not needed

Subconjunctival hemorrhage is almost always a benign, and spontaneous event in which a small blood vessel seeps a drop or so of blood under the conjunctiva over the white of the eye (although it can occur from trauma).
It looks dramatic, but needs no treatment as it will clear by itself over a 3-10 day interval usually. You can use warm soaks to hasten the absorption.

In brief: Self limiting

Usually a small broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye, this condition will get better on its own.
The concern is checking to be sure that there is no bleeding inside the eye, or some other conditin causing the broken vessels.
