    Well, yes, anemia can lead to red eyes in some degree. First, you should know that anemia is a blood disorder which occurs when there are no enough red blood cells in the body. And nutritional deficiency or difficulty processing iron, sudden or chronic blood loss, can cause it too. When you suffer it, you may have red eyes. So it can be the common symptom of anemia. By the way, it can also lead to dark circles, itchy eyes. anyway, just console it with your doctor.

    If you are suffering anemia, it means your blood does not have enough red blood cells or your blood does not have enough hemoglobin. And at this circumstance, your body or parts of your body will seem to be more pale, instead of more red. So, it is unlikely for anemia to cause the red of eyes. You should go to see your eye doctor if you are suffering the red of eyes since there are several medcial conditions which may cause red or bloodshot eyes. And don't be worry, it is always easy to treat.

    Anemia is a condition that the red blood cell count or hemoglobin is lower than the normal standard. It is caused by decrease in production or increase in loss of red blood cell or hemoglobin. Some people with anemia have no symptoms. Meanwhile some people do have some typical symptoms, easily fatigued, looking pale, a feeling of heart racing and so on. I have anemia myself. I do have some symptoms. It is easy for me to get tired. Sometimes I feel faint and dizzy. Yet I looked many materials and found no resources about the connection between red eyes and anemia. Is there any other trigger for your red eyes? It is easy to get bloodshot in eyes, because eyes are the most sensitive organ of our body. Simply eye strain, dryness, infection, inflammation, allergies or trauma in the face could cause eyes red. Don't worry. If the situation is serious, you can go to check with you oculist. Usually red eyes could clear out soon.
