Why do my eyes go red when I drink alcohol?
When I'm a bit drunk, my eyes will go really red and it makes me look a mess.. Also the make up on my face always goes messed up and I have no idea why, its not like I touch it. When I'm not drinking, my make up will be fine. Why does any of this happen and is there any way to prevent my eyes from going so red when I drink?

Blood shot or those eyes become red because of the dilation of the blood vessels on the surface, which makes them more visible thereby giving that red color.

I haven't imbibed alcohol for many years, but yes, that always happened to me.
If fact, my whole face would get red and feel puffy.
I'd say it's a sign that liquor just isn't for you (or me).
Do you also get headaches and nausea with just a drink or two? (I did.)

Does drinking alcohol make your eyes red?
Yes, as the alcohol is processed by your liver, it can produce bloodshot eyes, pounding headaches, and flushed cheeks! Any Suggestions here?

After you drink alcohol, it causes the tiny blood vessels on the surface of the eye, called the sclera, to become dilated and inflamed, resulting in bloodshot eyes. So you will feel hot in your eyes after drinking. Besides, you should know that heavy drinking depletes the body of the nutrients needed for eye health and consequently can lead to a condition know as alcoholic optic neuritis. This can impair eyesight and, in time, lead to blindness. And for the brain, in the short term, heavy drinking depletes the body of vitamin B1, causing a lack of concentration and poor memory. In the longer term, it can kill off brain and nerve cells leading to memory loss, confusion and reduced co-ordination. It can also shrink the brain, which increases the risk of epileptic fits, and make cerebral blood vessels more likely to rupture and hemorrhage. In other words, drinking alcohol will not only damage your eyes and brain ,but also do harm to your other organ like mouth ,teeth ,heart ,skin and so on. So you'd better control it for your body's health.
