Why Are My Eyes Always Red?

By    |   Thursday, 06 Jun 2013 05:00 PM

Question: My eyes are always red. I have been seen by a doctor and there is no evidence of any disease or irritation that’s causing it. What’s the best way to get rid of the red and make the whites of my eyes whiter?
Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
Red eyes are usually caused by irritants. Sometimes glaucoma — hypertension of the eye that leads to premature blindness when unaddressed — will cause red eye or inflammation of the colored iris. This can become serious if not treated early.
My bet is that you are reacting to an aerosol or perfume, or exposed to smoke or allergens.

You will need to become your own detective for this. If you have not sorted this out within a day or two, ask for a referral to and ophthalmologist for evaluation.
