Eye drops: As long as redness of eyes is related to crying only (and not connected with allergies, glaucoma etc), you may try any of the otc decongestant eye drops on an "as needed" basis. Delve deeper to find out why you are crying and then hiding it frequently :).

Visine ok sparingly: Visine to get the red out is okay to use sparingly. If you are needing to use it frequently (daily), then tears would serve you better.
