Why do your eyes burn when you wake up in the morning?
Several things can cause this including those mentioned in previous postings. Depending on your age, sex and medications, dry eye can be the cause. We don't blink when we are sleeping so the eyes can be dryest first thing in the morning. Wet a washcloth with very warm water (not so that it burns you), wrap it around your finger, close your eyes and do a gentle scrub at the base of your eyelashes when you first wake up in the morning and again right before you go to bed. Artificial tears such as Refresh Tears or Systane may also provide releif. If this doesn't help, I would advise a visit to your eye care provider.
