Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Red eye is caused by swollen or dilated blood vessels on the sclera, the white outer surface of the eye.
Red eyes can be accompanied by eye pain, itching, eye discharge, swollen eyes or visual disturbances such as blurry vision. In other cases, a red eye may cause no irritation at all.
Common Causes of Red Eye
1.Conjunctivitis. Also called "pink eye," conjunctivitis is one of the most common (and contagious) eye infections, particularly among school children.
When the conjunctiva is infected, the blood vessels within it become irritated and swell, giving the eye a red or pink appearance. In fact, a reddish-pink eye is a telltale symptom of conjunctivitis.
2.Dry eyes. Dry eye syndrome occurs when tear glands produce either an insufficient quantity or quality of tears to properly lubricate and nourish  eyes. Chronic dry eye can cause the surface of the eye to become inflamed and irritated, making eyes look red. While dry eye syndrome may not be curable, it can be managed.
3.Allergy. Red eyes often are referred to as "allergy eyes," given that eye redness is a common indicator of an allergic reaction.
When your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen,  body releases histamine as part of the inflammatory response that
As a result, the histamine released causes blood vessels in your eyes to enlarge, making eyes become red and watery.
4.Contact lenses. One of the main culprits of red eye is over-wearing or not properlycaring for  contact lenses, which can cause a build-up of irritating surface deposits and microbes on eye.
Red eyes while wearing contacts could be a sign of a serious eye infection, such askeratitis or fungal eye infections.
5.Computer vision syndrome. Red, burningand tired eyes go hand-in-hand with staring at a computer screen for too long, which can cause computer vision syndrome. One reason is that blink less when working at a computer, which dries out the surface
6.Eye injury. Trauma or injury to the eye, including cosmetic eyelid surgery, can result in red, bloodshot eyes, sometimes accompanied by a subconjunctival hemorrhage
7.Corneal ulcer. Infections of the cornea,  A corneal ulcer typically is caused by an untreated eye infection or trauma to the eye.
8.ocular herpes. Also called eye herpes, this is a recurrent viral infection caused by the type 1 herpes simplex virus — the same virus that causes common cold sores.
9.Uveitis. An inflammation of the middle layer of the eye (uvea), uveitis typically is characterized by red eyes, light sensitivity and visual disturbances such as floaters and blurry vision.
10.Glaucoma. In most cases, glaucoma is gradual and asymptomatic when it first develops. But a sudden onset of painful, bright-red eyes accompanied by halos around lights, vision loss and nausea may signal acute angle-closure glaucoma.
11.Whitening eye drops. Eye drops marketed for red eyes contain vasoconstrictors, which are chemicals that shrink the blood vessels on the surface of  eye to reduce redness.
Ironically, whitening eye drops can cause more harm than good over the long term. Many people who regularly use eye drops formulated to "get the red out"
12.Cold and flu. Bloodshot and puffy eyes, along with a runny nose, are common symptoms of a cold or flu. Red eyes in this instance typically are caused by a sinus infection or blocked sinuses, especially when accompanied with sneezing and coughing.
13.Pregnancy. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can affect eyes in many ways. eyes may become red and bloodshot, as well as dry, itchy and sensitive to light.
14.Smoking. The dangers of cigarette smoking to  heart and lungs and other diseases associated with smoking are well-known, but
In addition to significantly increasing the risk of age-related macular degeneration(AMD), cataracts and uveitis, tobacco smoke is a toxic eye irritant that also can cause dry, red and itchy eyes.
15.Excessive alcohol consumption also can cause eye redness. Alcohol reduces oxygen to your red blood cells, causing blood vessels to clump together and resulting in a ruddy complexion and red, bloodshot eyes.
16.Environment and workplace hazards.Extremely dry air, dust, smoke and excessive sun exposure are known eye irritants that can cause red eyes, among other symptoms.
Corneal scratches caused by windblown particles such as sand and wood filings or flying bits of metal and glass .
17.Lack of sleep. The appearance of your eyes is a dead giveaway when you're tired. Puffy eyes and dark circles are telltale signs you haven't had enough sleep. And remember: rubbing sleepy eyes will only aggravate eye .
18.Swimming. Chlorine and other pool sanitizers — as well as bacteria found naturally in any type of water, including oceans, lakes and rivers — can wreak havoc on swimmers' eyes.
Dr. Ravindra Upadhyay: yes,  head injury, subconjuntival haemorrhage, concussion,
