What can you do for a subconjunctival hemorrhage?

ANSWER

Usually, you don't need to do anything. It typically goes away by itself in a week or two.

You can use over-the-counter artificial tears if your eye is irritated.

Unless your doctor tells you to, don't take aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxyn, or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications because they can increase bleeding.
