In brief: Depends

If allergies, blepharitis or conjunctivitis-- these will require treatment from a doc.
If due to dryness, use artificial tears. If due to contact lenses, may need to change lenses, brand of lenses or solution or even stop contacts. If due to environmental exposure (eg smoke) avoid irritants. May be sign of needing more sleep as well.
