    Well, yes, it is possible to have red eyes when you have played video games for a long time. As we know that when you play the games for a long time, it will just make your eyes to focus on the point for a long time. And then it can lead to eye strain, and then eyes will become tired. So just stop playing games. And make your eyes to have a rest time. Also, infection can lead to red eyes too. So just do not rub your eyes with your hands, which are full of bacteria.

    It is possible to get red eye for playing video games. If you could control your video-playing time, it is OK. If you keep playing video games for more than 2hours per day, it definitely will impact your eyes and vision. Keep staring at the same distance for long time, which makes your eyes strain. Eye strain happens because the eye muscles are over used. When you concentrated on your video games, your eye muscles are tighten, which will cause your eyes pain, dry, red, vision blurred and even headache. I suggest you to control the time of playing video games, no more than 2 hours per day. Change the focus of your vision to give your strained eye muscles a break. Doing some eye exercises would be great.
