Symtoms: Heavy Eyes at night, Dry Eyes during the day

I have heavy eyes at night plus dry and redness and during the day they are irritated and dry, looks like pink eye could it be allergies? Sometimes one eye gets so bad it looks like pink eye but than it goes away after 2 day.

Hello,

If there is itchiness and watering, the eye symptoms can be due to an allergen.  Allergens include pollen, mold, dust and pet dander. But dry eyes can be due to inherent lack of tear secretion and cause pain, light sensitivity, a foreign body sensation and itching. For this the therapy is using artificial tear drops and ointment to lubricate the eyes. But please consult an ophthalmologist for further guidance.

Take Care and Hope this helps!
