Refractive error could cause your symptoms. If the symptoms persist after getting updated prescription, it would be prudent to see a doctor to rule out other causes. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV and Covid vaccines.

Sounds like dry eye symptoms. Try Retaine MGD drops available OTC, but if that does not work you may need to see your local ophthalmologist.
