Eye allergy, with constant itching in the eyes, can cause the eye to look bloody. Allergies cause red, itchy, burning and watered eyes. Eye allergies occur due to a glitch in the immune system. The immune system produces antibodies that cause the eyes to release histamine and other substances to fight allergens. Because of this, it is observed that the eyes are red, itchy and watery.


Redness, itching and swollen eyes can also occur due to infections. Common eye infection includes:

Conjunctivitis or pink eye: conjunctivitis is an infection that produces red and irritating eyes. It is usually caused by a virus and usually does not respond to antibiotics. In extreme conditions, conjunctivitis can also cause itching and tears.


Blepharitis is another eye infection that makes the eyes red. Crusting, which usually occurs on the cilia, also appears.


Many changes occur in the body with pregnancy. Complaints such as redness of the eyes, blood sitting can occur during pregnancy, but these complaints are usually temporary.

Lack of sleep:

Going to bed late at night, looking at a TV or computer screen for a long time are important reasons that tire the eyes.

Alcoholic beverages:

Consuming alcoholic beverages can cause eye blood, as it inhibits the absorption of vitamins A and B in the intestines, which are necessary for the eye.

Contact lenses:

As a result of the fact that those who use contact lens do not pay attention to hygiene and behave sloppily over time, this attitude invites bacteria, microbes and infections. In addition, long-term lens use leads to dry eyes, and dry eyes are also one of the causes of eye blood.
