Rest : You don't get infection related pink eyes from being tired. Not sleeping enough & being tired causes vasodilation of the conjunctival blood vessels, redness & foreign body sensation. Best treatment is to get enough rest. Stay away from over the counter "take the red away" drops for being tired. They can cause a rebound vasculitis with more red eyes. And; eye exams every 3 years in your age.
