Allergies?: Have you been tested for allergies? Besides dust, other possibilities include dust mites, feathers (in your pillow), mold (in your carpet), etc. You can see your primary care physician to get tested (immunocap = very reliable blood test) and treated; prescriptions or over the counter meds may help you, including oral antihistamines, topical treatments (eye drops, nasal sprays). ...Read more

Otc drops for red eyes in excess can get the red in. ...Read more
Remove Lenses: Contact lenses cause your eyes to turn red and can be painful. Basically the lenses are preventing proper oxygen delivery to the surface of the cornea.

You might develop an infection, such as a corneal ulcer...And can blind. ...Read more
