Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It can be allergy to pet the house or to food and drink which needs to be checked. Augmentin is an antibiotic which has been started to treat inflamatory cause. To avoid exposure to pores in atmosphere for which the child can minimize going out. Now after taking the precautions refraction can be done and see if the power of the eye will has improved change the specs.and see acuity of vision has improved or not. It is not dry eye. to confirm it amount of tear secretion should be tested by ophthalmologist.

Hope it helps. let me know if I can assist you further.
