Thank you for your question.


You might be suffering from dry eye syndrome.


I would recommend that you put lubricant eye drops in your eyes. I know you don't like it but if they are dry and you are rubbing them you could cause damage to your cornea.


You also need to have your eyes checked to make sure nothing is going on that could be serious,


If you smoke that could also be irritating you eyes,


Do see your eye doctor to find out with an examination what is going on.

I haven't seen an eye doctor yet I wanted to see first if its something i should consider to have a look at

Yes I really would have it checked. Like I said it could just be as simplw as dry eyes.


When you get your eyes examined the Doctor will be able to tell if you have any damage to yoru cornea or not. If you do have some scuff marks they usually heal pretty quick as long as you stop rubbing.


Take care.
