    Actually, the usual kidney problems will not cause the eyes red. You may check whether you get the cold. However, if your kidney problems are caused by the problems of high blood pressure, the eyes may appear red because of the high eyes pressure. You need to decrease the hematuresis. You must pay attention to the high protein food which can not be eaten. Like bean products, eggs and lean, you can not eat. In addition, you cannot drink which will stimulate your blood capillary. Instead, you should eat more vegetables, light food and drink more water which will help the excretion of uric acid. At the same time, you'd better go to see the doctor to treat the kidney problems which will have the big role for your whole body health. If the red eyes don't disappear, you'd better choose to use some anti-inflammation eye drops to release the symptom.

    Definitely yes, it could cause red eyes. Every health person has two kidneys, which plays as cleaner in people's body. That is to say, when blood passes through the kidneys, it is cleaned, the waste products and excess fluid are removed. Healthy kidneys also balance the chemicals in the blood and produce hormones to control blood pressure and maintain healthy blood cells and bones. However, it is a minor but serious cause of bloodshot or red eyes when your kidneys could not work as good as usual. This means the blood pressure is not balanced and controlled well by kidney , thus would make thin blood vessel to be broken to cause the red eyes.

    Yeah, chronic kidney problems (CKD) can make eye appear red. The leading causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) are diabetes and high blood pressure. These conditions are also the leading causes of eye disease and loss of vision. The common eye problem that occurs in CKD patients is retinopathy, which will make your eyes look red. Retinopathy is a condition where the small blood vessels in the eyes become damaged. The affected area of the eye is called the retina. The retina, which senses light, is a thin layer of blood vessels and nerve endings that cover the back of the eye. When these blood vessels become damaged, they weaken and break. Blood leaks into the vitreous, which is the clear, jelly-like substance that fills the inside of the eye. When too much blood leaks into the vitreous it will become cloudy, preventing light from reaching the retina.
