Red Eye Remover Pro does what it says on the tin :)

Red Eye Remover Pro is able to automatically detect and instantly correct red pupils in your photos.

The program lets you work with large collections of images at once, making batch red eye correction a snap! Everything you need to do is to load photos damaged by the red-eye effect into the program and the program will do the rest. To achieve the best result, you can adjust the correction options, watching the results in real-time.
