To know me personally is to know that my eyes are almost always red. I have beautiful bloodshot eyes and the red really sets off my green eyes. It's like Christmas all the time! As much as I would like to say this is from smoking way too much weed, I can't. It's just not true.
Dr. GI has noticed the reddness of my eyes the last several times I have seen him. He always looks into my eyes with a look on his face like "Hmm, that's interesting." During my colonoscopy I asked him why my eyes are red. I figured maybe he would say that I smoked too much weed. (Again, kidding, I smoke just the right amount. Okay, not really. I don't smoke at all.) Anyway, he said it could be because of Crohn's disease. He called it Episcleritis. I looked it up. Click HERE to learn more. Apparently it's common in those of us with IBD. Who knew?
