Hello there. Looks like there is a infection. It's called conjunctivitis. Wash your eyes with running water and you will need eye drops. You can use ciprofloxacin eye drops,one drop 5 times a day for 3 days. Avoid touching and rubbing the eyes. Once you touch the affected eye and then the normal eye, it will spread. Consult a ophthalmologist if it doesn't subside. Regards
