What causes red eyes?
The appearance of red eyes is caused by dilation of tiny blood vessels located between the white surface of your eye and the overlying clear conjunctiva. These tiny blood vessels (many of which normally are invisible) can become swollen because of environmental or lifestyle-related reasons or because of specific eye problems.

Red eyes are usually caused by allergy, eye fatigue, over-wearing contact lenses, or common eye infections such as pink eye (conjunctivitis). However, redness of the eye sometimes can signal a more serious eye condition or disease, such as glaucoma.

LEARN Sanskrit🙏🏻

श्रोत्रं श्रुतेनैव न कुंडलेन, दानेन पाणिर्न तु कंकणेन।
विभाति कायः करुणापराणां, परोपकारैर्न तु चन्दनेन।।

अर्थ – कानों में कुंडल पहन लेने से शोभा नहीं बढ़ती, अपितु ज्ञान की बातें सुनने से होती है। हाथों की सुन्दरता कंगन पहनने से नहीं होती बल्कि दान देने से होती है। सज्जनों का शरीर भी चन्दन से नहीं बल्कि परहित में किये गये कार्यों से शोभायमान होता है।

Wearing coils in the ears does not enhance the beauty, but by listening to the words of knowledge. The beauty of hands is not achieved by wearing bracelets but by giving charity. Even the body of gentlemen is not adorned with sandalwood, but by the works done in charity.
