In brief: URI's involve eyes
When you say you get sick i will assume you are talking about an upper respiratory infection of some kind.
Many times these involve the sinuses as well as the eyes due to there close proximity. Some viruses also infect both the eyes and the throat.

In brief: Check with your doc
If frequent infections, should have your blood chemistries and immune system checked out. Improve hygiene and also reduce stress or any factors weakening your immune system.
