Brief Answer:
It seems like episcleritis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

I saw the photo attached with the question, it shows redness and nodular swelling of the sclera in the inferior portion of the eye adjacent to the cornea.
This appears like inflammation of the episclera.
The treatment is by use of antiinflammatory drugs for control of the inflammation. Oral analgesic tablets can be used for pain relief.
I usually treat conditions like this with anti-inflammatory eye drops like ketorolac or flurbiprofen.
If the condition fails to respond then mild steroid eye drops may be required under the supervision of your eye doctor.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
Thank you
with regards

Yes, I am suffering from constantly red eyes. I have been treated by an allergist for borderline cat and dust mite allergies with many different steroid eye drops to no avail. I have also tried Eye Bright drops and pills without any real improvement. Should my ophthalmologist have taken a scraping of my eye at this point to determine if the redness really is due to allergies?

I am 60 years old person (Non-Diabetic and Blood pressure level Normal, Uric Acid , Urea , creatinine level and thyroid profile, lipid profile - ALL ARE NORMAL). I have been suffering from EPISCLERITIS since last 5/6 years and after a gap of 4/5 months, the symptoms reappear, especially in LEFT EYE with paid and redness on outside corner of left eye. I was treated with Steroid Eye drops ( Betamethasone , Dexamethasone , Prednisolone, Flurometholone, Loteprednol etc) and I was cured after 7/8 days. Again after 4/5 months Episcleritis repair. Can you suggest me permanent remedy ? Can Anti-oxidant oral therapy bring any solution ? I suffered from CSR twice (once in left eye and once in right eye and I was cured with Flurbiprofen eye drop without Laser treatment) I also suffered from KERATITIS 5/6 times during my young age.
