    Although light consumption of alcohol probably won't cause any health problems, drinking alcohol excessively can have harmful effects on your body, including your eyes. Heavy drinking of alcohol may cause problems with your vision and overall eye health including decreased visual performance, slow pupil reactions, decreased peripheral vision, decreased contrast sensitivity, optic neuropathy, frequent migraines and poor cosmetic appearance. Drinking alcohol can cause eye redness. Alcohol causes the blood vessels in your eyes to expand, making them more prominent. Moreover, alcohol consumption do cause itchy and watery eyes and theses symptoms will be disappeared when the eye drops are used. Hope this helpful.

    For I know that light consumption of alcohol won't cause eye health problems, but heavy drinking of alcohol can cause many vision problems. These problems including: 1. Double vision. Drinking too much alcohol can cause the weakened eye muscle coordination, which can lead double vision. 2. Eye redness. Drinking also can cause the blood vessels prominent, which appears as eye redness. And there are many other eye problems caused by drinking too much achohol, such as watery eyes, decreased peripheral vision, optic neuropathy, decreased contrast sensitivity and so on.
