Commonly, acute sinusitis, or a sinus infection as we typically refer to it, can cause irritation leading to a red eye. Sometimes, you can experience a discharge from your eye, or you may notice a crusting of the eyelid or lashes. More commonly, red eyes are caused for conjunctivitis, which most call pink eye, or an eye allergy.
If you have noticeable pain behind your eyes, or around your eyes in your face, you likely have a sinus infection. If you have noticeable irritation, pain, followed by a very red/pink irritated eye then you likely have a pink eye infection. If you have swollen, red eyes and pain that accompanies it you may have an eye allergy.
