    Well, yes of course, with a lack of sleep, we are likely to suffer strained and dry eyes that may make you feel itch. However, sometimes we tend to ignore some other causes for those itchy feelings. For example, red eyes and other infections could give rise to itchy feelings too. My advice for you is to consult a doctor and take some relevant steps to tackle this problem.

    Yes, the lack of sleep will cause the itchy eyes. You feel itchy at the eyes because the eyes are too dry. When you have the bad sleep, your water in the eyes is not enough to make the eyes get moisture. You'd better use some eye drops to make the eyes feel better. At the same time, it can eliminate the bacterium in the eyes.

    Yes, lack of sleep can cause itchy eyes. Itchy eye is a major symptom of inadequate tear production. If you don't have enough sleep, you body will be very dry and result in stopping produce tears. In that case, dry eyes occurs. So if you want to avoid itchy eyes, you should lean inner corners or debris once a day to keep it clean. Moreover, you should not have excessive eye makeup and use eye drop to diminish irritation and keep eyes clean and moist.
