    The signs and symptoms of red eye and related conditions often depend on the underlying cause. For example, if the red eye is due to a dental disorder, there may be signs of tooth decay or dental disease in the animal. Other common signs and symptoms may include:

    Impaired vision

    Swollen eyelids

    Eye discharge

    Extra tissue around the eyes

    Nasal discharge and upper respiratory infection or cold

    Hair loss and crusting in the mucous membrane, especially around the eyes, nasal area and cheeks



    Abnormal posture

    Facial masses

    Causes of red eye:

    Because there are many causes to rabbit red eye, it is often difficult to identify the exact cause. However, some factors may include:

    Bacterial infections, including Treponema cuniculi (or rabbit syphilis), which can cause swollen eyelids

    Conjunctivitis, a common disorder causing red eye that can result from allergies, bacterial or viral irritants; sometimes occurring as a side-effect of a respiratory tract infection

    Keratitis, which is usually a fungal infection of the eye, and which can follow an injury to the eye

    Glaucoma, which if left untreated, can cause blindness

    Dental diseases, which can bring debris in the eye, causing inflammation or blocking a tear duct

    Having said above that redness of a rabbit eye is likely to be caused by disease, it is also true that some rabbits are genetically red-eyed. But they are the least common.

    Among rabbits, the most common rabbit eye colour is brown. Varying shades of blue and gray are less common. Red or pink eyes are a genetic mutation and the least common.
