    Yes, it is possible to get red eyes from depression. Red eyes can be an indication of a body disease and it is important to find out the reason that causes it although red eyes usually do not cause pain and develops when blood vessels around the surface of the eye enlarge and dilate. Multiple reasons can account for red eyes, such as pink eyes, blepharitis, dry eyes, uveitis, frequent use of eye drops, contact lens wear, eye injury, corneal ulcer or infection, subconjunctival hemorrhage and acute glaucoma. Apart from these, red eyes can be caused by osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, erection problems, high blood pressure. Therefore, when you get red eyes, you should watch out and check if you have suffered other disease.

    Well, in my opinion, depression can cause red eyes, for depression can disorder your body system. In that way, it can affect the blood pressure, and then lead some eye problem to your eyes, such as the red eyes, bloodshot eyes. Of course, there are also many other factors which can lead to red eyes too. For example, the most common cause is the eye infection. If your eyes are infected by some irritants, your eyes can turn to red. Also, the high blood pressure and eye pressure can be the causes too. So just be careful. And you can go and see an doctor, so that he can give you some advices.
