every now and then when we have throat infection our whole upper respiratory tract gets infected and we have a connection from our nose to our eyes it is called a Nasolacrimal duct. so when the duct gets infected it gets swollen and blocked. so the tears cannot run down through them to our nose so our eyes get watery. also it gives ascending infection to the eyes. so our eyes have discharges and due to somewhat concurrent allergic reaction during the infection it affects our whole upper respiratory tract as well. hence that itchy red eye. just boil some water and cool it down then slash your eyes every 2 hrs with it. use a nasal decongestant and breathe in some steam every 4 hrs. usually it will give you some relief. and also do visit the doc for some medication for your sore throat. Hope you get better soon,
