I wear glasses and prescription sunglasses. Since l started training, my eyes tear (l keep rubbing them alot) all the time. Anyone experience this? If so what did you do about it?

It could be the cause of a number of things- dry eye is common. Go to the isle in a pharmacy and look for Systane Ultra- in gel- for night- and in regular drops ofr anytime day use. It is made for contacts so it is safe in all cases. Also use Bio-True as a wash for your eyes- and sinuses- They are connected!! You might have a bit of a fungus and Bio- true can be used as a wash that will prevent- and cure if that is the case. It also will prevent and cure pink-eye!

Hope you get relief!

Make sure your a/c vents are not blowing directly at your eyes. Might consider using floor vents only and see if it helps. I know it's hard to stop, but rubbing your eyes is bad for them. Get and use some visine, there are like many different types now.

I drove through Indiana and the ragweed covered the truck like snow. Bothered my eyes to the point I couldn't wear my contacts.

I took a 34 and popped a claritin. It worked.

I get the same thing when I travel. I have some mild allergies that aren't that noticeable when I stay close to home but they rear their head when traveling. I usually just take my contacts out and tough it out. I did go to the doctor for it once though and he prescribed some eye drops that drained my eyes and sinuses really well.

Good advice-- VISINE is not recommended, however.

Never did have this problem before driving trucks. Was wondering if it had anything to do with driving 3-5 hrs straight just staring ahead, sideways etc. Seems to disappear when l am done driving. I always turn the a/c vents upwards so the air isn't blowing directly on my face.

Funny you asked this question, I have been having the same problem, my eyes tend to start burning from being dirty around my eyelids and the sides of my eyes. I use face wipes whenever I get the chance too and their is always a dirty residue on them. I just started wearing glasses and perscription sunglasses that are not wrap around style. I never had this problem before with the wrap around style glasses, i wonder if it has something to do with the way the air moves between the glasses and the eyes. Either way it is quite annoying especially when they start to burn and i cant keep my eyes open for that long without cleaning them. Hopefully that made sense to at least someone out there, lol.
