Red eye, matted swollen eyelid could be due to infection in the eye causing conjunctivitis( pink eye), blepharitis & many more causes. The extent of infection needs to be checked for.

Please note that a seemingly harmless pink eye may at times cause corneal involvement & hamper vision. Alternately, the infection may be more deepseated or spread in other parts of eye &cause problems.

You need to consult an ophthalmologist for evaluation,accurate diagnosis & treatment with prescription medications.
