    Hey all. This is simply a theory i have...not sure if its true or not- id just like to see if its completely off.

    Theory: People who wear glasses/have poor eyesite are more likely to have red eyes after toking.

    Basis: The 4 people i know who'se eyes do not get red at all after toking all have great eyesight. My brother, me and other folx i know who wear glasses/have horrible eyesight get either red or EXTREMELY red eyes. My eyesight is also probably one of the worst ive come across and my eyes become so red after tokin' that it's almost unbelievable- something out of a horror movie really.

    Anyway- i'd like to test this theory, so basically respond first by answering the question, and then u can go on to explain/rant/criticise me .Just answer something like:

    My eyes get red/I wear glasses.

    and then explain or ellaborate if you want.

    tank ya

    i have 20-40 and it takes me a full night of blazing to have red eyes, after a blunt with a few people my eyes will be fine.

    there is probably no correlation in general, but some specific types of eye problems can be caused by pressure issues and inflamed eyes. these can be exasperated or corrected in teh short term by cannabis.

    yeah, this one's BUSTED. there's no correlation except with very, very few exceptions, as StonerBill alluded to. but bad eyesight (particularly in young people) is not usually the result of pressure problems; it's more likely to be because of funky-shaped corneas.

    anyway, the human eye is full of blood vessels and these will expand from THC ingestion whether your eyes are "good" or not!

    The answer while partly genetic is also largely hydration levels. In essence drink at least 1gal of water a day and you will rarely (for the most part) get bloodshot eyes.

    my eyes are pretty crappy, and usually get pretty red after i smoke... droopy too. depends though... sometimes they don't get red at all. maybe it has to do with the situation as well? amount of light coming into your eye, if your eyes are straining or something? i also find that when i smoke everything is just a little bit out of focus.. at least it seems like that sometimes
