In brief: Orbital infection

Yes, a sinus infection can cause eye swelling and redness.
But usually it's because the infection is spreading to the tissues around the eye. This is considered one of the more serious complications of sinusitis. You should be seen and evaluated soon to get proper treatment for your condition. Wishing you the best.
