Hello lybrate-user. Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. Let me enumerate them in brief:(1) allergy (2) infections better known as conjunctivitis. They occur along with discharge and watering. (3) foreign body stuck in the eye. Occurs in people who have a lot of driving and traveling. (4) inflammation of the coat of the eye. Better known as uveitis. (5) raised intraocular pressure. This occurs along with pain. Usually there is associated family history of raised pressure in parents or grandparents. (6) raised blood pressure. Better known as sub conjunctival hemorrhage. Thus, from all the fore mentioned reasons, by far the most common cause is allergy. It occurs due to improper eye hygiene and repeated rubbing of eyes with fingers, clothes, handkerchief, etc. A good idea would be to identify the category that you fall under and treat it accordingly. Most probably, it would be due to allergy in your case. Still, better safe than sorry. Get your eyes examined in person by an eye specialist. Let me know when further assistance required. Take care. Regards.
