    Yes, acid reflux may cause itchy and red eyes. But acid reflux is not the only factor to cause itchy eyes. Dry eyes, eye infection foreign in your eyes can also cause itchy eyes. So, I suggest you use some eye drops to moist your eyes. And don' t rub your eyes even if you feel itchy because it may cause scratched cornea. If you still feel itchy eyes after using eyedrops, you'd better see a doctor.
