Eyes burn BADLY when I cry

Hi!  I have noticed over the last year or so that my eyes will burn so badly while I am crying, or shortly thereafter, that I can't even open them!  I used to think that it was due to mascara that would get in them, but today, I had a realization that I haven't worn mascara in a long time!  I have some other health concerns and was wondering if this is indicative of a bigger problem or what could be causing it!

I do wear glasses (it happens in glasses or contacts!)  It is so bad that I have to RUN to get water or tissues to get the tears out of my eyes!

Any help will be appreciated!

1. have a complete eye exam by an Eye MD and discuss the problem. Find one at www.aao.org   In the meantime try not crying and if you must use artifical tears to comfort the eye.
