Hello. : Hello. The pupils look red in photographs because the light from the flash has reflected so that you are seeing the back of the retina. This can be seen in photographs of people of all ages. It is about photographic technique and not about health. Take care.

And : And in fact, a good red eye is actually what we want to see in infants. If one eye is red, and the other is not, we get concerned and recommend a visit to the eye doctor.
