    In human, albino is rare to associated with red eyes because a human eye is quite large and thus produces enough pigment to lend opacity to the eye. But there are many other factors that contribute to red eyes. For example, reading too much e-book or computer screen can cause red eyes. Also, lacking of sleep can also cause red eyes in the morning. Some people even get red eyes by eating spicy foods. But those red eyes will gone themselves with sometimes.
