... closed. Tried to open them and hurt even worse. I felt my way to the sink to try and splash water and found no comfort. Tried turning on the lights and tried forcing my eyes open and adjust to the lights, I finally could see for a few seconds but cuz of the pain I had to close them again, and even when closed they still had a level if discomfort. My daughter in law gave me 2 Tylenol and 4 ibuprofen and a wet wash cloth and and just laid there with eyes closed till I fell back asleep. When I woke up in the morning I could see just fine and had no pain but I did have huge bags under my eyes. Today they hurt like I'm tired and just need sleep. Is this something I should concert myself with
The sensation of burning eyes is generally a symptom of another problem, such as dry eye, an eye infection or allergies. With your description it could be a keratitis which is an infection of the cornea. The cornea is very sensitive so any mild problem could cause this discomfort. A lot of these infections are viral and not serious but can be very uncomfortable. .The other possibility is that it could be acute dry eye, and you may need to use lubricating eye drops. Your eye would need to be examined by a doctor or optometrist to get a firmer diagnosis. For more information see:
