Why do I have bloodshot eyes when I wake up?

My eyes are always really red when I wake up. Shouldn't I appear well rested?

Your eyes are red when you wake up because they have been closed for so long. If you need to get rid of the red, put in some Visine.


Answer by  ToralDwivedi (606)

Most common cause is hypertension, alcohol intake last night, insomnia, diabetic retinopathy or allergy of something [you have to detect allergen yourself]. Get yourself checked for diabetes, hypertension and get fundoscopy done from a qualified ophthalmologist physician. A foreign body in eye or exposure to irritants should be ruled out.

Some people just have eyes like that until they get the circulation moving in their bodies. But contact your local eye doctor to make sure there isn't some problem.
