    Yes, the glaucoma may cause subconjunctival hemorrhage because of the sudden high pressure in the eyes. Glaucoma is a kind of disease with big danger which may at any time lead to blindness. Its complicated features are intraocular pressure which happens suddenly. The persistent rise in the eye pressure is more than the level the eyes can tolerate. To the large extent, all parts of eyeball organization and visual function are damaged which may lead to optic atrophy vision, narrow and decreased visual acuity, blindness and so on sooner or later. In acute seizure phase of 24 to 48 hours, it can completely cause the blindness. The sudden rising eye pressure may cause the corneal to not burden the pressure and cause the blood. That is why the subconjunctival hemorrhage causes. Thus, people with glaucoma should be checked at the eyes at regular time, avoiding such dangerous situation.

    Well, you should know that glaucoma can not cause subconjunctival hemorrhage. First, you should know that Glaucoma actually refers to a group of diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve as a result of increased pressure within the eye, but can also be caused by a severe eye infection, injury, blocked blood vessels or inflammatory conditions of the eye. And in some cases, it can lead to blindness. On the other hand, the most common causes of subconjunctival hemorrhage are coughing, sneezing, straining, or any similar action that temporarily raises blood pressure in the veins, leading to a small rupture in a blood vessel or capillary. To treat your subconjunctival hemorrhage, you can just put some cool teabags on your eyes, and then have a good rest. And they can disappear. And for the glaucoma, most cases of glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, laser or microsurgery. And the treatment depends on the type and severity of the disease, and can be discussed with your doctor. So you should contact with your doctor and have a test.
