Blepharoplasty?: I am guessing you had eyelid surgery. The following refers to that (as incisions on the eye generally cannot be seen). If so you had some skin removed and the upper lid elevated. This opens the eye a little more and alters the tear distribution. The redness is from dryness. Get some over the counter lubricating drops and use them regularly until the eye surface adapts. ...Read more

If the child is developing amblyopia, (vision loss in the weaker eye), glasses and/or patching would still be the 1st effort. If the eyes did not line up correctly, patching might help first, but delicate eye muscle surgery may be needed. ...Read more
