Sudden burning sensation

Question:

My husband has been complaining of sudden burning sensation in his eyes, as if there were some sort of fumes in the air. This has no pattern. All of the sudden they burn and water, he closes his eyes for a little while then its gone. There is no redness, blurred vision or discharge besides tears.

Answer:

He probably has dry eye. He should see his eye doctor for treatment. There are many effective ones available.
