Yes indeed, this is a hell of a red eye. To make it worse, the effects in the two eyes differ in lightness. In such cases, you should treat the eyes one by one.
Press M to select the elliptic selection tool, and draw a marquee around one eye. You should select an area 1-2 pixels larger than the actual red eye. Right-click the selection and choose Feather in the shortcut menu. This feature softens the edges of the selection. Set a Radius of 2 to 3 on the dialog that appears. The selection should be softened so that the edge of the retouched area shows a nice transition instead of a sharp boundary.
Next, click Image/Adjustments/Desaturate to make the selection colorless. Redness is gone, but the eye still glows just like before. You have to darken it. Click Image/Adjustments/Levels to do so. Type 0 or a near-zero value into the Input Levels field in the middle. You can also use the grey middle arrow under the histogram. Drag it to the extreme right.
In certain cases a totally black pupil can ruin the authenticity of the photo if the whole picture doesn’t contain any black. In such a case, drag the black left arrow on the Output Levels dialog further to the left until you get an appropriate grey result.
The inside of the eye is dark enough, but the image still needs some work as the pupils are unrealistically wide. For the simplest method, click Filter/Other/Maximum and set a radius of 2 to 3 pixels.
This will also make the twinkle in the pupil a bit larger and more square. To make the effect more realistic, select the Blur Tool from the tools palette (or press R) with a small brush size (about 5 to 10 pixels) and carefully paint over the twinkle to soften it.
