5 yr old having red circles under watery eyes

My 5 yr old grandaughter has had watery eyes since she was an infant in varying degrees. She also has red to purple circles under her eyes. Her parents thought that it was caused by clogged tear ducts and were messaging those a few times a day and thought they saw some improvement. Then things got bad again and they took her to an eye doctor who said that she had sensitivity to light. Her eyes are so bad now that she looks very sickly with the reddish purple under and watering and constantly wiping her eyes. Her mom says that she cannot seem to pinpoint any specific foods that might be triggering these symptoms

HELLO LIL,
THE REDNESS UNDER YOUR GRAND DAUGHTERS EYE COULD BE DUE TO THE IRRITATION CAUSED BY HER CONSTANTLY RUBBING HER EYE. IT LOOKS MORE LIKE ALLERGIC IN ORIGIN. HOW EVER I WOULD NEED MORE INFORMATION LIKE IF YOU SAW PUS NEAR HER EYE LIDS, IF SHE HAS A RUNNING NOSE ALSO WHEN SHE HAS WATERY EYES IS IMPORTANT. THE BEST YOU CAN DO AS FOR NOW IS MAINTAIN A GOOD FACE HYGIENE AND TRY AVOIDING FOOD LIKE FISH EGG ETC AND CONSULT A OPHTHALMOLOGIST SOON
