Calorie Restriction = Bloodshot Eyes?

i was doing a low carb high fat/protein diet and recently ive switched over to a moderate fat, little bit more carbs (more fruits), and high protein. when i was on the high fat diet my eyes were fine, but now that ive lowered my fat a lot my eyes are bloodshot and a little dry. ive had this before when i was on a low calorie diet. anybody else experience this?

Yup - just in my left eye. Not dry but permanently bloodshot.

Although it seems to be clearing up a little bit now that Im upping calories and returning to maintenance.

so anyone know what this means?
