In brief: Redness.
Conjunctival hyperemia is one form of what results in a "red" eye.
The term "hyperemia" refers to an engorgement of the blood vessels in any part of the body. In this case it is in the conjunctivae. It is a sign of inflammation in the part of the body where the "hyperemia" is present. The blood vessels are engorged as a result of additional inflammatory cells accumulating in the blood vessels.

There are blood vessels that become engorged due to many causes. Please see your eye doctor and have a great day!
