Difficult to tell: The cause for a “red” eye can be extensive and thus requires a careful history and examination. The eye has limited responses which can include redness, light sensitivity, discharge, itching and discomfort. These symptoms can be caused by infections by bacteria, viruses, and fungi. However, they can be induced by allergies, trauma, high eye pressure, and inflammation (iritis). Please see a Dr
