If your eyes are burning, with symptoms of itchiness and a discharge of any type (with the exception of normal tears) there are cures that are available for relief.

If you are places were cigarette or similar smoke is around you, you can end up with eye problems. Pollutants from a factory or cars can also cause issues for your eyes too.

Some other things that can also cause burning eyes are:

  • Allergies. If its that time of year and the flowers are in full bloom, you can get burning eye symptoms due to allergies or hay fever.
  • Pink Eye. This pesky viral eye infection can be culprit to your itchy, burning eyes.
  • Environmental. As stated above, irritants like smoke or exhaust in the air can cause your eyes to have symptoms of itchiness.

  • Bacterial Infections. Usually identified with a puffy eyelids and yellowish discharge, a bacterial infection is another bad guy when it comes to your eyes.

After that, grab an antibiotic eye ointment either online or at your local store to begin your initial cure process. Follow the instructions for the amount you should use as well as how often you should apply the treatment.
