According to what you described ,what you probably have is a refractive disorder ,specifically myopia or astigmatism .
The other possibility specially for the redness ,is eye dryness ,some people's eyelids do not close completely making their eyes really dry and red specially when you get up in the morning . If there is itchiness or burning sensation , allergies and conjuctivitis should also be investigated .
The eye doctor needs to perform an eye exam to determine what specific type of lenses you need and the correct graduation . But this is not dangerous at all ,is pretty common condition and can be corrected with regular lenses or contact lenses if you prefer.
In the meantime, You could get over the counter eye drops like Clear Eyes ,avoid alcohol and cigarette which make your eyes even more dryer and apply a wet towel over your eyes for 20 -30 minutes .
