A lot of things can cause an eye to be red. Dry eye, lack of sleep, systemic health conditions, or vision-threatening corneal ulcers. Red eyes can also happen when small blood vessels, under the tissue that covers the white part of the eye, rupture.
If you have had eye trauma, let’s take a look and make sure everything is all right. If this is the first time you have experienced it, haven’t had trauma and you are not experiencing pain, you are probably safe to watch it. A warm compress will help the blood break down and reabsorb more quickly. A second occurrence or discharge associated with the blood deserves evaluation.
At Advanced Family Eyecare, we have long since given up trying to determine what stress can cause. Yes, probably, but if you are experiencing any pain or discharge it would be wise to have your eyes looked at.
It depends on what is causing the redness. If you have redness that won’t go away and/or is associated with pain or discharge, we should take a look and find a cause. Causes may be as simple as allergies which can easily be treated with drops you use once a day or as serious as a manifestation of significant health problems.
Many eye diseases don’t have early symptoms. You might not see any change in vision until the disease has advanced. They may be painless.
The best way to protect your vision is through regular professional eye examinations. Of course, between examinations, if you notice a change in your vision – or you think your eye may be injured in any way – contact us immediately.
At Advanced Family Eyecare, we want to get to know you. We will ask questions about the following:

Dr Jones told me more about my eyes than any other eye doctor. He was very thorough and didn’t rush. I was very impressed. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be coming here from now on.
We recently took our son in for an eye exam. The service was great and so were the glasses. Advanced was patient and helpful, especially Margo Blue. I highly recommend Advanced Family Eye Care.
