In brief: Needs exam

This depends on what is found on exam. Sometimes this can be dryness of the surface of the eye.
Try artificial tear drops, these can be bought over the counter, if this does't help see an ophthalmologist.

In brief: Dry eye treatment

Your description sounds like dry eye.
Initial treatment is frequent artificial tears during the day, ointment at night, warm compresses a few times a day, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. If no improvement, you should see an eye doctor for further evaluation.
