Anyone get Red Eyes From Anxiety?


Ive noticed for the past 13 years or more that my eyes turn red when in excessive amounts of anxiety flares up. Then my allergies worsen and vice versa. Ive read that depression can also be cause by allergens. Its annoying but may see what my pcp says.

Never heard of anyone getting that symptom from anxiety alone. It could be that anxiety has made your allergies worse.

No but I get red eyes from lack of sleep. I just use those red eye drops.

The redness is caused by inflamed or irritated blood vessels so it makes sense that anxiety and stress can cause redness.

I do have Red Eyes. It is because of always looking at the PC, late-night sleeping, and sleeping less.

It is also because of more UV rays near the equator.

Yeah it comes sometimes because when you are anxious or depressed your immunity will no longer stay strong. To keep it strong enough you've to keep yourself calm and peaceful. Try to get a good sleep and eat proper diet to make your lifestyle healthy.
