How did you apply it? Did you click on the red eye areas? Did you try adjusting the pupil size and darken amount values? –  Lèse majesté Dec 28 '12 at 8:28

Simply select the Red Eye Tool, then click-drag on the image to draw a box around the red eye... you may need to click-drag a couple times to get the entire eye.

Red Eye Tool

Perhaps a better method is to use the Desaturation Tool and simply brush away the color yourself. All the Red Eye Tool does is apply desaturation to the center portion of the area you click-drag to create. By using the Desaturation Tool, you have far more control over the amount of desaturation in addition to the actual area of desaturation.

Good answer! How do you get these animations? Wonderful idea! –  Kyle Sevenoaks Dec 28 '12 at 8:40
If this solves the issue you should mark it as the correct answer. The animation is created via a screen capture utility which saves a movie file. Then the movie file is opened in Photoshop Extended and saved as an animated gif. –  Scott Dec 28 '12 at 8:49
