Hello and welcome.

Thank you for your query.

It is common to have red eyes, not just from salty water but also from the chlorine added to pool water, to disinfect it.

Do not worry as this is considered normal, and usually subsides in a day or two. You could in the meantime apply a cold compress to your closed eyes (eyelids).

Best wishes.
