Red eye

In my initial qutsieon: I DO NOT have a problem with dark circles! I was saying that most products out there are for dark circles or puffiness. I DON'T have those problems. I'm wanting a good ANTI-AGING wrinkle cream. Don't people thoroughly read the full questions? The last two answers were about helping to treat dark circles.

Red eye and B6

I have been taking B6 for around a year now. I stopped taking the B6 because six months ago because my doctor told me to. My red eyes started and stopped when I stopped. The doctor said to get back on them. I did and my red eyes came back within a week. I take 200 for deficiency. My eyes are red from the iris to the corner of the eye, really red and sore but not too sore. Could it be a reaction to the B6? I see my doctor next week and will be talking with him about it. I would like to know what you think.

Red eyes

My left eye was bloodshot for about 6 months, then over the past 4 years it's both my eyes. It's sore. This makes me stay in a lot because I have lost confidence. I would be grateful for any advice. I feel the optician isn't helping much.

First time red eye

My nephew and neices had pink eye a month ago, so im guessing I have it now, but my eye looks bloodshot red! The eye drops they used for pink eye dont seem to be helping my eyes at all! So since I have allergies, I'm now taking allergy meds, my eyes are so watery and red. I just turned 31! Some way to celebrate a birthday! I woke up Thursday morning with a bad swollen red eye, and now the swelling has gone. Now it's Saturday night and my eye is so watery and red still.

Red eye, foggy vision and imense pain

For 5 years I have had red eye. First the doc said eye infection and for 3 years the antibiotics got it away, but it always came back. The disease or injury comes early winter about 1-2 months before Christmas when it turns cold. The medicine stopped removing it the 4th year and I've had it since. Now at the 5th year the meds keep it halfway away, but it suddenly got worse, I had redness that has lasted 2 weeks or more now and I can't see out of that eye. The other eye is 100% healthy apart from -1.0 vision, the infected eye had 1,25, but I'm assuming it has somewhere lower than -3.0 now. It is painful, it's red and no medication works against it. I don't know where it comes from, the only thing that has ever happened to my eye was a fly in 8th grade and the first "infection" broke out in 9th grade. An optician thought I might have inflammation, but the doc says this is "probably" not correct and won't give me the meds for it.
