I am not certain as to whether or not you are still waiting for an answer or not but I will give a short reply for now.
From what you described it sounds like you may have dry eye syndrome.
Tis typically gives the signs of redness to your eyes and the symptom you described

Additionally it can be activated by the chronic use of the visine to get the red out.
For this symptom you would be best using lubricating drops such as refresh tears
or refresh optive advanced up to 4 times a day.

This is some general information.
Any other questions leave them in the box below.
