The causes for red eyes are very diverse therefore without a clinical exam, making a diagnosis would be very difficult.  Definite red flags in which you should see an ophthalmologist immediately would be pain or decreased vision.  Otherwise, you can try lubricating the eyes with some artificial tears (avoid visine) 4 times a day for a few days and see if that helps as dry eyes are a common benign cause of red eyes.
