    Well, yes, burning eyes can be a sign of pregnancy. According to some researches, when people get pregnant, there will have Preeclampsia. In that way, it can also cause swelling, particularly in the face and hands. But on the other hand, some other symptoms such as blurred vision, burning eyes, headache, and nausea may occur too. By the way, some serious visual problems may occur, because high blood pressure stresses the retina, pushing it forward.

    Burning of the eyes is almost always due to irritation either from some dryness of the air, wind or pollution. Alternatively, you may have the dry eye Syndrome. However, due to hormonal changes during pregnancy, your eyes may feel very dry. The quality or quantity of your tears may change substantially while you are pregnant. Dry eyes can sometimes cause you to feel like a piece of sand is in your eye. Your eyes may burn, itch or even suddenly become excessively watery.Your doctor may recommend the use of artificial tears given several times per day to alleviate discomfort due to dry eyes.
