1. Dry Eye
Dry eyes are one of the most common reasons behind red eyes.
2. Contact Lenses
When you use contact lenses on a regular basis, it may cause irritation and dry eyes. As a result, you can end up with redness.
3. Uveitis (you-vee-eye-tis)
The layer between your cornea and iris is called the uvea (you-vea). When the uvea gets inflamed, the condition is known as uveitis.
4. Acute Angle-Closure Glaucoma
Acute angle-closure glaucoma is a rare disease and happens when your eye pressure goes up dramatically.
The cornea is the outermost layer of your eye. When this part becomes inflamed, it’s referred to as keratitis.
6. Broken Blood Vessels
When there’s too much pressure built up in your eyes, it can cause the blood vessels to break and end up causing redness.
Your eyes have oil glands inside them, which can get clogged. When that happens, you will suffer inflammation which leads to blepharitis.
If you have allergies related to pollen and dust, exposure to these elements can cause your immune system to release chemicals known as histamines.
9. Pink Eye
When you have pink eyes, it causes inflammation in the blood vessels, leading to redness. You can get pink eyes from infections caused by bacteria or exposure to viruses.
When the white part of your eye, known as sclera (sklur-uh), becomes inflamed, it’s known as Scleritis.
The episcleral tissue is the part of the eye below the clear mucus membrane. When this tissue gets inflamed, you will suffer from a condition called episcleritis.
12. Digital Eye Strain
If you tend to stare at screens for long hours, you could be giving yourself a digital eye strain. As a result, the eyes can become red from all the discomfort.
