Dry eye, inflammation, and eye corneal epithelial wound are very possible to cause visual fatigue, and lacking of tears nourish eyes would be more sensitive to outside stimuli, these will lead to burning eyes. It is recommend you have a good rest, and basically for a long time would be better the next day.

    It is possible that you have been using your eyes too much, making the optical nerves and muscles get very intense and tired, so the eyes will burn at night. It is better for you to see an eye doctor so as to get correspondent treatment. You should first of all not use your eyes too much. Pay attention to have a rest every other hour of reading or staring at the computer screen. Apply some anti-fatigue eye drops to reduce the feel of eye burning and do some eye exercises by massaging the closed eyes.
