What's wrong with my dog's eyes? - Pannus

Cash's Eye Problems
My dog's eyes are very red and irritated and he is having a hard time seeing. Cash is an 8 year old, male Queensland Heeler.
I have had my dog on two different types of eye drop ointment and recently been told by the last vet visit that my dog has Pannus and a staph infection on his nose (he's currently on antibiotics for the staph).
The vet told us to see an eye specialist even though he was almost positive it was pannus (a $90 visit). My dog was an inside dog until a year ago when we replaced our carpet and had a baby. Since then his eyes got really red along with his nose being scuffed up and bleeding.
I can tell he is having a hard time seeing because he keeps running into things and has a hard time finding us from a short distance at the park. Sadly he ran to a tree in the park thinking it was me.
Our first thought was that he has allergies towards grass because his eyes would really flare up after playing at the park. His eyes would also really flare up when he was under stress.
I was hoping to find out the exact issue of my dog's eyes and what medicine I can give him to get his eyes back to normal.
