Red eyes and dark circles? :(

Well i wear hard contact lenses due to my eye condition. I have this thing that really gets to me! I always get red eyes in the evening especially when I go out to clubs. Yesterday i knew i was going out in the night so i gave my eyes a rest and didn't wear the lenses until the evening. However i STILL got red eyes!! and to make matters worse I have the worst possible dark circles under my eyes too. It just makes me look extremely tired all the time and like im on drugs and like im ill (almost looks like panda eyes). I drink lots of water, I get reasonable ours of sleep (8+) and also use eye drops. I don't know what's wrong with me and its really distressing me and making me look ugly. Anyone got any suggestions?

Re: Red eyes and dark circles? :(

I used to get red eyes like you describe, wosre at night.
I sit in front of a computer for 10 hours a day for my job.
The only thing that helped me was to quit drinking alcohol
I also use steroid eye drops at night 3 or 4 times a week.
These were prescribed by my eye doctor.

Re: Red eyes and dark circles? :(

Are you going in clubs where there is cigarette smoke? That could be causing the red eyes. Or you could be allergic to something that causes your eyes to be irritated, hence the redness. The dark circles under your eyes are a sign of allergies, not lack of sleep.
