Allergies: At this time of year, there are many things floating around in the air that can irritate the eyes. If you do not treat these problems, they can last for months. Try using artificial tears 4x/day in both eyes. You can also use the OTC allergy drop, 'Zatidor' - this is 2x/day.

No limit: There are strong protective reflexes which cause blinking to protect the eye. Given sufficient will power, someone might keep the eye open indefinitely - something done for religious reasons by some. Be happy that your eyes blink to spread the tears and keep the eye healthy.
