In brief: Eyes getting dry
A blast of air, be it from a fan or wind, causes your tears to evaporate quickly.
To compensate, you blink more since blinking releases tears. The solution is to wear sunglasses when outdoors and avoid having a fan blowing on your face indoors. And you can use artificial tears 4 times a day if it becomes a constant problem.
