Surface inflammation: Red eyes can be from inflammation from chronic allergies, dry eye syndrome, blepharitis (minor infection of the eyelid margin), meibomianitis (blocked ducts on eyelid margin, and from benign vascular growths on the conjunctiva called pinguecula (can grow into the cornea then called a pterygium). You need the right diagnosis to get the treatment to get rid of red eyes. You need an eye exam.

Too many to list: Without actually examining you there are many possibilities. Some which may go away on their own and some which need immediate attention. The reason why I am answering you is to let you know that visine will either do nothing, or will make it worse. Visine is very dangerous and should never be used....Ever! it serves no purpose and can only make you worse. Avoid at all costs. See an eye md.
