Dry eyes: Sandy or gritty sensation of the eyes is usually related to dry eyes, a very common problem affecting millions of people. Treatment may consist of nutritional supplements, lubricating drops, anti inflammatory eye drops, warm compresses over the eyes, as well as punctal plugs.

Residual Erosion : Often this complaint comes from some type of issue with residual erosion or severe dryness. I would see an eye md or a corneal specialist for an examination if it is a persistent problem. Also i would look to see if you have a fan on a night or are sleeping in an overly dry environment. Often overhead fans can cause severe dryness to the eyes.
