    Does anyone else have eyes here? By red eyes I mean the red veins on the whites, not the acutal pupil.

    I have it because well I am student but does anyone know any quick fixes?

    it depends on what's causing the eye redness.

    - exhaustion
    - environmental irritants
    - allergies
    - dry eyes

    Could be any number of things. The quick fix is Visine or Clear Eyes or products of the like, but these could make the condition worse if taken continuously. And using these products may just be masking more serious issues.

    If, as a student, rest does not help, then see an opthamologist first to ensure it's nothing more serious.

    My eyes are pretty sensitive. Anything will make them red - weather changes, fatigue, general eye strain (reading, computer time), etc. It sucks. I use the stuff that says natural tears on the box. It usually helps.

    To the poster 2 up...visine is bad for you, like OP said. Consistent use actually leaves the eyes redder.

    Visine. I don't use it often. But when I use it, it works.

    Also, if you wear contact lenses, take them out every night. Don't sleep in your lenses. This can cause neovascularization.

    Are you sure it isn't iritis? Is the eye photophobic?

    My eye doctor recommends Systane drops, but you should get your eyes checked.

    a good tip is to use cammomile tea bages on your eyes, good quality ones. They reduse puffiness and redness 10 mins does the trick

    My eye doctor recommended systane ultra for my dry eye and zatidor for when my allergies are bothering me. They work really well. She also tells me to never use Visine. It is the worst drop you could ever put in your eye as it is mostly preservatives. I used it for years as well as clear eyes and now I have macular cellitis. Which is rather annoying. My left eye is always red and a little puffy and my right one is red some of the time. Systane has no preservatives and Zatidor has a preservative in it that is not harmful to you.

    If you spend a ton of time in front of the computer, you should get glasses, even if you don't have a prescription. My eyes were always red when I wore contacts because of too much computer. Now they never are (and I still spend too much time at it). The physical barrier (possibly plus not sticking stuff in my eyes) seems to have made a big difference.
