In brief: Symptoms
If you have pain, lowered vision, cloudy discharge with sticky dry material on the lids or much swelling, than you might be infected.
Most redness is from allergy or irritation but if you have these symptoms, infection is a strong liklihood. See your ophthalmologist if that seems possible.
