What Would Happen To Your Eyes If You Keep Them Open For 24 Hours
Corneal damage: The cornea (front window of the eye) needs to remain lubricated in order for vision to be sharp. The skin on its surface will break down if the eye dries out, increasing the risk of infections.

For 24 hours now, it seems as if my eyes are refusing to work together. If I have both of them open, they refuse to focus on the same object. ?
I'm finding it hard to open my eyes in the mornings, today my vision started to go blurred at the side of my eyes but returned to normal after an hour.

Environmental allergies can cause swelling, but it would not change in nature in relation to crying. ...Read more

I do interval training for an hour a day 6 days aweek it called insanity. I also run 2-3x aweek 3-6 miles. An I go to the gym 4 days aweek. Today was the first day I felt wicked tired an could not keep my eyes open. So I did nothing an now I feel guilty.
Commendable but rest: Your exercise program sound vigorous and should be commended, but the muscles also need time to rest and rebuild. Your tiredness could be how it's telling you to take a rest for a day. If the tiredness remains despite the rest, see your doctor to rule out other causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
