    For I know that there is no direct connection between hypothyroidism and red eyes. There are many problems can cause red eyes. Such as pet dander, sun exposure, lack of sleep, eye infections, and some disease also can cause red eyes. If you get red eyes when you suffer hypothyroidism, tell it to your doctor for help.
