Burning eyes are a common condition with many causes. The
obvious cause of burning eyes are allergies, seasonal and indoor.
But there are other, less obvious causes of burning eyes.  Here
are some clues to the help you unravel the reason for burning
eyes.





Pollution Is an Often Overlooked  Common Cause of Burning Eyes


The first time I experienced burning eyes, unrelated to allergies,,
was during a long stay in Buenos Aires. A beautiful, exciting city,
Buenos Aires suffers from terrible traffic congestion in the Capital
District. Pollution from buses and cars can be  a shock to the
sinuses and the eyes.

After being diagnosed with conjunctivitis caused by the pollution,
I was advised by a doctor to step away from the traffic as much
as possible. I started to step back from the curb to put distance
between my eyes and traffic fumes.  It helped.

You can put a barrier of moisture between the sclera and the
outside world. Saline drops prescribed by your doctor can help
immensely.

Blepharitis Can Make Your Eyes Sting


Your skin is estimated to have approximately 14 billion bacterial
cells on its surface. You get your first dose of bacteria as you
make your way through the birth canal. And those bacteria, and
other hitchhikers that you pick up along the way, stay with you
throughout your life. They're almost impossible to get rid of
entirely.

Because they exist everywhere on your skin, bacteria can build
up on your eyelashes and easily get into your eyes. They can
enter the eyes from your eyelashes or when you put your fingers
in the corners of your eyes to clean them. If the eye becomes
infected, you can develop blepharitis. A tell-tale sign of the
condition are white flakes on your eyelashes.


One great habit to incorporate into your daily hygiene routine is
to wipe your eyes in the morning and at night with a swab dipped
in warm water. This will simply knock down the bacterial count
around your eyes.

You should also of course carefully clean off makeup each night.
Never sleep in eye makeup. You must also simply discard your eye
lash makeup and eye pencil makeup periodically because it's
impossible not to pick up bacteria from the lashes and around the
eye as you apply the makeup. You then reinfect the eyes the next
time you use the eyelash or liner.

If your eyes have become infected with bacteria, you will need to
see a doctor to stop the infection.



Dry Eyes Cause a Burning Sensation


If your eyes are too dry, the sclera can become irritated and you
will experience it as a burning sensation. Dry eyes can be caused
by many conditions a well as many medication.

One of the most common causes of dry eyes is simple aging. You
can add moisture barrier by using just a drop of castor oil in the
corner of the eyes. Eating foods rich in Vitamin A such as sweet
potatoes  also can help relieve dry eyes. Here is a comprehensive
list of the causes and natural remedies for dry eyes.
