Welcome to Just Answer

There is a possibility of allergic eye disease ( exact allergen may not be identified) which results in itching and some burning( there may be some redness too). You can use over the counter Alaway/Zaditor eye drops , 1 drop twice a day along with preservative free Refresh tears eye drops , 1 drop 4 times a day. If symptoms do not improve by 2 weeks of treatment then you will need a detailed eye check up by an ophthalmologist .Blepharitis also can cause itching of the eyes but is invariably seen in both eyes.
