Its burns more when I'm outside. Especially during windy conditions or sunny conditions. It also burns more when im using computers or watching television. I have been having this problem since a very long time. I don't have other dry eye problems like redness, watery eyes.

    I had this problem for years and eye doctors said it was dry eyes and to use eye drops to fix it.  Eye drops (all kinds) didn't work.  some times they made the burning worse.  I accidentally tried cleaning my eye lids with gauze whetted with OCuSOFT eye wash (you can get it online) which was given to me for cataract surgery and surprisingly it instantly got rid of the burning.  I had other people with this problem try it and they said it worked.  It might solve your burning.  I use a rolled up Dukal #1312 3" x 3" gauze pad whetting the tip of the gauze across the eye lid.

    I too have very dry eyes after RLE surgery . It is worse when I’m at work & in the computer all day . Are you in the uk . I might give that a try . At the moment I use Hyco Sans drops & night time ointment.

    Redness and watery eyes aren't always symptoms of dry eyes. Burning, achiness can be. Important to use eye drops without preservatives. Staring at a computer screen can make it worse. Good idea to take a "monitor break" to give your eyes some time without it.

      The drops I have are preservative free . I am given a medical break of 5 minutes every hour as a break away from my computer

    What medications are you on?  A reaction to a medication- even if you have taken it for years, can manifest like this.
