Brief Answer:
Conjunctivitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi, XXXXXXX
The redness looks like conjunctivitis. don't use the ciplox drops if it was opened and used before. Buy a new one and use 2 drops for 6 times a day.

Is your vision normal?
If the redness do not subside in 3 days and any disturbance in vision then do consult the ophthalmologist immediately.

Take care.
