red eye

noun. an eye that appears red due to illness or injury

Redness in the eye can be caused by many conditions and injuries that can lead to irritation, blood in the eye, or swelling of blood vessels.

 

It is usually injection and prominence of the superficial blood vessels of the conjunctiva, which may be caused by disorders of these or adjacent structures. Conjunctivitis and subconjunctival hemorrhage are two of the less serious but more common causes.
