Burning is a common symptom that many patients complain about to their optometrist. Burning eyes can indicate a variety of conditions in the optometric field. Most of the time burning eyes point towards there being damage to one of the front structures of the eye. These anatomical structures that may be disrupted would be: cornea, conjunctiva, episclera, eyelids, and/or eyelashes. If the burning eye sensation is worsening and vision begins to be compromised then please visit an optometrist so he can make sure that there is nothing-serious happening.
