This is usually due either to an eye allergy known as 'vernal conjunctivitis' or irritation of your daughter's eyes by smoke from fires or other irritants. Try using Spersallerg eye drops in her eyes twice daily for about 10 days and see if this helps. If it does you can continue using these eye drops once daily for one month. If her eyes do not improve it would be best to ask an ophthalmologist [eye specialist] to see her
