The two most common causes are conjunctivitis and subconjunctival haemorrhage. Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the outermost layer of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids. It can be caused by a bacterial or viral infection, or be the result of an allergic reaction.
It means “be angry” or “enraged”, it connotes a very strong emotion to the point that it is difficult to control yourself. Conceptually, the idea is that your visual field takes on a red tinge with blood rushing to your face, though whether that actuallly happens or not is hard to say.
Broken blood vessels This happens when tiny blood vessels break beneath the surface of your eye. The blood is trapped and makes the white of your eye turn bright red. It can be caused by a strong sneeze, heavy lifting, hard vomiting, or rubbing your eye a little too hard.
Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is detectable in about one-third of COVID-19 patients, according to a 2020 Chinese study. Eye symptoms usually appear in the first 3 days after a person is infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, can be the first symptoms a patient experiences, and can be mild.
For example, red eyes can indicate minor irritation or a more serious condition, such as an infection. Red or bloodshot eyes occur when small blood vessels on the surface of the eye become enlarged and congested with blood. Red eyes alone are not usually a reason for concern.
Remedies for red eye are wide-ranging. Many times, rest, cool compresses over closed eyes, lightly massaging the eyelids, gently washing the eyelids, and/or over-the-counter eye drops, can relieve the symptoms. Other times, an eye doctor may recommend and prescribe antibiotics, special eye drops, or ointments.
