Red is for 2 things.

1) As previously stated, it stops reflections of the scope that give away your position.

2) It stops UV rays from being magnified into your eye, which can blind you eventually. (We're talking professional snipers that look through their scopes for hours at a time, here, not airsoft, but still)
