Can a subconjunctival hemorrhage be prevented?

If you are having frequent subconjunctival hemorrhages or your subconjunctival hemorrhage is associated with easy bruising or bleeding elsewhere, you should have a medical evaluation for an underlying bleeding or clotting problem. Treatment of such an underlying condition may prevent future hemorrhages.
