Burning Sensation in Eye

03/17/2010

Question:

sometimes i feel a huge burning sensation in the eye (especially in the region near the nose) it persists even when i close my eyes or even after tears are shed... then after sometime it stops. (does it have any connection with half of my nail colour being lite purpule or greyish instead of healthy pink??)it started to occur just a few days ago...

Answer:

See your optometrist for a specific diagnosis that explains your symptoms. After that, he or she will explain the cause and recommend a treatment plan for you.
