i have mucosal thickening in my right posterior ethmoid sinus and might right eye burns the most as compared to the left. Could the mucous be the reason?
And what could be the other line of treatment apart from treating the sinus?

I do not think sinus problems can cause burning eyes. They can cause pressure and head pain in the nose and eye area. if you have got thickening of the lining of your sinuses in ethmoid area on the right then you need to wash your nose - use a neti pot and do it 2-3 times a day with warm salt water.
