    From your description, it may caused by seasonal allergic rhinitis. It is not a big eye problem. When you get it, you can get help from some antiallergic eye drops. But if you ignore it, it may possible further cause eye infection. Though it is not a big eye problem, but it is very uncomfortable. Besides, use warm compress on your eyes, it can help your eyes release from burning eyes. Hope this can help you.

    Well, don' t panic. It is quite normal. Try to find some moisturizing eye drops when you plan to go out in winter. You have to know that the cold weather in winter can dry your eyes and then give you a feeling of burning. When you are in this situation, you can apply to my eyelashes a few times a day to clear the blockage. But you don' t need to do this too often, coz which may make your eyes keep watering. Further more, if you like, you can also wear a pair of sunglasses when you go out in winter. Don' t think people only wear sunglasses in summer, it depends. Anyway, do not rub your eyes or drop your eyes yourself, you had better consult a doctor or a professional person.

    Maybe the cold temperature causes the stimulation on your eyes. Your burning eyes may be affected by the infection because of the coming invisible bacterium. In order to prevent it happen in the next winter, you should avoid the outside activity. If you have to go skiing, you could wear the special sunglasses with polarized function. You should not use the eyes too much time with little rest. You could keep on doing the warm compress to make your eyes get comfortable. Your eyes will feel moisture and get comfortable. You could do this often to reduce the sensitive degree of the eyes.

    Ok, as you can see, burning eyes is a symptom of your eye health problems. Generally speaking, those burning eyes could be resulted from infections with eyes, bad use of eyes, etc. My advice for you is to go through an eye test to figure out what led to that. And you gotta try to pay attention to your use of eyes and what you eat , also, you should take exercise on a regular basis to build up your health.

    It is very likely that you are suffering from dry eyes. In winters, the air is dryer than usual, making dry eyes more severe. Another possible cause may be allergic rhinitis. If you also have running rose and sneeze in winter, you are suffering from seasonal allergic rhinitis. In the case of dry eyes, you need to have more rest, sleep better and protect your eyes from strain. Drip some artificial tears. In the case of allergic rhinitis, you need to cure your allergic rhinitis by taking medicine or other ways.
