The term “red eye” is a non-specific term that describes the appearance of the eye. Red eye could be due to an illness, injury, eye infections, or other condition such as allergies. Doctors don’t tend to take immediate action when a patient comes in with red eyes. It’s a very common condition and usually relates to something else such as tiredness, substance abuse, allergies, cold/flu or trauma. Red eyes can also be called or referred to as “bloodshot eyes”, “pink eye” and “allergy eyes”.
