In brief: Lid scrubs

It depends on the cause of the redness.
A common cause is blepharitis, which is inflammation and blockage of the oil glands that line the eyelids. The best treatment is to apply warm compresses for a few minutes and then scrub along the lash line using baby shampoo. Repeat this once or twice daily. If the redness doesn't improve after 3-4 weeks, see your eye md to rule out another cause.
