Irritation: I recommend you visit an ophthalmologist for this. And start using some artificial tears. But the ophthalmologist who examines you can conduct a full exam and see if anything in the back of your eyes is causing this. Could just be a case of dry eyes. I also recommend you start using sunglasses more often.

Pterygium: You may have a pterygium or a pinguecula which are benign growths on the sclera or white part of your eye. See an ophthalmologist to be sure. Artificial tear drops may help with the redness.
