Lid scrubs: Most of the time the red rimmed eyes are related to lid inflammation or blepharitis. Using either commercially available lid cleansing pads or dilute baby shampoo on a cotton ball 1-2 times a day will help get rid of red rimmed eyes. See your eyemd if you need medications to clear it up.

Eyewash: First, try washing out the eye with sterile solution. If that does not work, see an eye doctor. Poking around inside the eye is likely to do more harm than good.

Squeeze out excess water & wraparound the potato. Apply x 15 min intermittently. See dr if needed.
