Puffy eyes: your symptoms suggest non bacterial conjunctivitis probably caused by exposure to pollens and dust i would ask your primary doctor for a solution based on these recommendations

Hat with broad brim.: Wear a hat with a broad brim, or use an umbrella to add more protection. Otherwise, avoiding direct sunlight sounds best for you. If something hurts, don't do it!
