Eye drops: Antihistamknes such as Claritin or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help but you can use over the counter antihistamine eye drops such as zaditor as well. Wearing sunglasses outside helps too. See your doctor if you still have problems.

Many treatments: If ur burning eyes r truly from pollen allergies, there are different ways u can try to help ur symptoms. Wearing goggles when u work in the yard, using artificial tears, for starters. Antihistamine eye drops, and antihistamine pills can help. Then when it is bad, allergy shots. Ask your local allergist to help you.
