He may have something like dust or other irritant in his eyes. Or he may have allergies. Allergies in dogs usually have skin-related symptoms. Look for licking of the feet and/or rubbing of the ears as well. If your dog will let you, you can rinse out his eyes with saline solution (not regular water, and not lens cleaning solution) in case there is something in his eyes. A trip to the vet is recommended.
