Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Red eye that occurs in your child is likely to occur due to mild irritation due to eye contact with water. Generally, eye irritation like this will disappear by itself in a few minutes to several hours without the need for any medication. Eye drops containing tetrahydrozoline are not recommended for use in children under 6 years, so you should not give them to your child. If indeed until the morning of the child's eyes are still red, or if you see your child's eyes remove a lot of eye dirt or runny water, you can take your child to the eye doctor for further evaluation. This indicates that the red eye is not only caused by minor eye irritation, but may be caused by something else (for example there are allergies, corneal sores, or eye infections).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
