How old is Max? Is it red skin or red-ish staining?

What are you feeding and letting him snack on? It may also be allergies???? Is the eye weeping or crusty? Is the pup trying to scratch the area? Is there a hair in the eye?

First thing I would do is switch him from Iams to a quality dog food (slowly).
Go to dogfoodanalysis.com and search for "Iams". It is full of grain fillers, and not very much protein that our dogs need. People are often under the illusion that Iams is a great dog food. (I used to be one of those people!) But it is not a quality dog food at all.
It's very possible he's allergic to one of the ingredients/fillers.
See if his eyes imrprove after you've switched him.
My dogs eat Solid Gold Hund N Flocken. But you can do a search and see what others are feeding their dogs, and then do the research on it in order to make your decision.
Good luck!

Don't forget you will see the results slowly with the food changes.

Dexter rubs his face on the carpet when he really loves the food he just ate.

Yes, I would get him off the 'Iams' food, as that is one of the worst 'dog foods' around. If you can buy it at a Grocery store, chances are it is junk.

If he's been eating the food for a long time and the redness has just begun, I would think it might not be the food (although I would switch him to a better quality one just for his health). I would have him checked by the vet. If he's rubbing his face more than usual his eyes may be feeling itchy.
