Why am I experiencing pain when closing my eyes at night?
MAR 10, 2014
My eyes hurt at night when I close them to sleep and then try to open them. This has been going on for a few weeks. Should I see a doctor?
This may be dry eyes and you can try over the counter dry eye drops to see if it relieves the symptom. I prefer drops that do not contain preservatives (preservative free) for this purpose. If your symptoms persist or worsen then a full exam is required by an ophthalmologist.
