Doctor can examine: Eye irritation can be from allergies to pollens and other allergens, or from irritants like wind or chemicals. Some people have blepharitis, an infection of the lids' edges. Conjunctivitis can be a viral or bacterial infection of the inner surface of the lids and outer surface of the eyeballs. Some people have sensitive skin on the lids, called eyelid eczema, that can lead to lids and eye redness.
