Some call them bloodshot eyes. Other lesser-known euphemisms include brake lights, cherry eyes, devil eyes. But there’s nothing casual about this, often, painful and itchy condition in which minuscule the blood vessels inside the eye swell and dilate due to some infection, causing red and pink lines to appear on the white of the eye (the sclera).
Red eyes can occur for a number of reasons – wearing contact lenses for too long, allergies, tiredness, exposure to smoke, dust or chlorine. This infographic explains the many reasons for this condition, and the different treatment options. Remember, don’t ignore it, take action.
