Yea, it can. Especially if you stay up for longer periods of time than you are used to. Your eyes are like any other part of your body, they need to rest, and may become tired, over used, strained, etc. You may also experience slight swelling of the eyelids. You could try a cold compress, (a bag of ice wrapped in a towel, a chemical cold compress, frozen spoon, or frozen spa mask) applied over the eyes, it may reduce the inflamation and possibly make you more comfortabe, however- do not place anything extremly cold directly on your eyes, and if you experience more than very mild discomfort, stop doing it.

Hi Tom,

welcome to HCM.

Yes red eye could be related to use of Meth.

But it would be a better idea to consult an ophthalmologist and let him examine the eye.

There are numerous causes of red eye and it is a major topic of discussion among eye surgeons. Before blaming it on meth, get a opinion from an eye specialist.

Wish you all the best.
