Few times it also turns red. Due to this I could not wake up on time and also feel uncomfortable. When I study I feel some dryness in my eyes. Please help me out with some suggestion.

By your description, it looks like a condition called vernal keratoconjunctivitis. It is a type of allergic condition. It increases in summer and dusty polluted environment.
I suggest you wash your eyes with cold filter water twice a day. Also, use Pataday eye drops (Olopatadine hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) twice a day regularly for as long as you have symptoms.
When itching is severe you can use Moxigram LX (combination of Moxifloxacin and Loteprednol etabonate) eye drops 2 hourly or as frequently as itching occurs.
Thank you doctor,
Can you brief about the eye drop procedure. Also please give some tips to maintain healthy eyes.
