3. Bloodshot Eyes
I get very red eyes during allergy season; however, bloodshot eyes with broken blood vessels can indicate a bigger problem than seasonal allergies. Bloodshot eyes can indicate high blood pressure. Having high blood pressure causes the blood vessels in the retina to kink, which makes them burst. As a result, bloodshot eyes develop. Ophthalmologists can see these vessels by looking at the inner part of your eye. If you do have high blood pressure, it is important to take steps to lower it. High blood pressure can lead to strokes and heart attacks. Thankfully, there are simple steps that can be taken to decrease high blood pressure. Cutting way back on sodium and increasing the amount of potassium in your diet can help lower blood pressure. Drinking beet juice or hibiscus tea can also help with high blood pressure,and this will in turn get rid of bloodshot eyes.
