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.

My eyes swell up a lot during and after crying, sometimes lasting for more than 24 hours after. Could this be a kind of allergic reaction?

I'm always exhausted even after 7-8 hours sleep. I am otherwise healthy , I struggle to keep my eyes open during the day.?
