I think you are referring to your sclera, not your cornea. The whitish part of your eye is the sclera. Redness of the sclera can be caused by dirt or impurities getting into the eye or rupturing of blood vessels in the eye or the use of certain drugs or it can be due to the diseased nature of the eye.
The commonest cause of the redness is exposure of the eyes to impurities or dust. If your eyes are constantly exposed to dust in your living or working environment, then that could be the reason for the redness. But to be on the safe side, you should see a qualified eye doctor for help. Your eyes are very sensitive organs and you should be careful about the decisions you make regarding it, if you think the problem is a serious one, see a doctor.

Thanks a lot. You are quite right. I think mine is caused by dust. I move about a lot - mostly on bikes and you know Lagos roads, I even shed tears while on them. Is there anything I can use to help me clean them out?

I can't prescribe drugs or eye drops for you just from the limited information I have regarding your problem, it is too risky. But I can give you some advice that can also be of help.
If you are sure the redness is caused by dust getting into your eye, then you can wear protective, non-medicated spectacles to sheild your eyes from the dust. And try to avoid rubbing or scratching your eyes if they are irritated, instead wash them out with clean water.
Lastly, if you are also suffering from other problems apart from the redness, problems such as eye pain, vision changes, or discharges, then please consult a qualified doctor.
