Why Do My Eyes Feel Like They Are Burning
Sounds like dry eyes: Burning eyes are usually caused by dry eyes, which can also make the eyes blurred. This can in turn lead to eye strain. Lubricating eye drops (artificial tears) should improve the symptoms within a day. If the eyes are still uncomfortable, see an eye doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
My boyfriend had been saying that his eyes feel like they are burning. He is a little afraid to use artificial tears. What do you think it is?!
Depends: On if there are visible problems. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health. But infection/sty would give redness and purulence. allergies would make red/itchy/watery. Contacts can get irritation, chemical or smoke can irritate and then, there's another whole list for dry eyes.
Dryness: As long as the vision is fine and the eyes are minimally red with no discharge, then the most common cause for the feeling of 'burning' is dryness. Go to the pharmacy and look for the dry eye section. Get lubricating drops (but not the drops which say gets the red out as these are drying) and use these drops regularly and that should address the problem.
Hi. Was watching TV. Then had to look away, felt like eyes were burning a bit, got anxious, then calmed down. Why did my eyes feel like that?
Ans: The eyes can get dry when they are strained or iverused. Fixating on a TV can dry the eyes out. If visual issues see your doctor. Rest your eyes
Burning eyes: Most of the time, use of otc artificial tear drops used 3-4 times per day will help more acute symptoms, then used as needed chronically to control them. Some people have dry eyes which may need to be treated in other ways as well. If the drops don't help, then you should see your eye doctor.
Keratitis: Flash burns to the eyes from uv light emitted from welding without protective eye wear can be very painful. Often self limited in mild cases. Recommendations to help the pain usually involve using lacrilube (artificial tears) eye salve, cold compresses, Ibuprofen for pain, eyes closed. If more severe, seeing an eye md to evaluate and prescribe a cycloplegic agent & occasionally a topical non steroidal agent (acular).See 2 more doctor answers

Depends on cause: The most common reason for burning eyes is eye dryness and there are lots of eyedrops in your pharmacy for this. Less common is allergy and you can find anti-allergy drops as well. If your vision is undisturbed and there is no pain, no light sensitivity and no discharge, then try one of these. If that does not work, consult with your ophthalmologist.
Ocular surface: Most burning and tiredness come from either dry eye syndrome, ocular surface disorder, or eye strain. Osd is usually from lid marginal disorders such as granulated eyelids or gland dysfunctions; or tear production insufficiency. Eye strain is often associated with long periods of poor lighting, excessive reading, stress or other illnesses.
Possible causes: Many things can cause this. Commonly, dry eye, allergy, and blepharitis (eyelid inflammation or infection) can create a burning sensation. Conjunctivitis (pink eye) can also cause burning. Exposure to airborne irritants (dust, chlorine) can also be a cause. If unsure, see an eye doctor to make a diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer
Burning eyes: This would suggest you have a tendency for a dry eye syndrome.
Inflammation: Eyes get especially sensitive to light when they are inflamed on the surface or have inflammation inside (termed uveitis). If you have just had this start, especially if the vision is disturbed and/or the eyes are very red, you need to see an ophthalmologist right away to get a diagnosis and proper treatment.
