Burning eyes

I have burning red eyes. I do not use any medication such as eye dops or anything else and also do not have glasses. I am 21 years old and never had eye problems besides this. I am active, have a balanced diet and not overweight. I am almost constantly yawning and feel very tired. I do not know what the cause might be. Please help!

Hallo Michelle
See an optometrist for an evaluation to see what the cause is: dry eyes, allergies or irritation of the eyes. The treatment may depend on the cause. Do you sleep well and enough?

Hi Dr Bets. Thank you so much for your reply.
Well I think I sleep well at night. I would wake up with swollen eyes that' s irritable. I have never worn glasses in my life. In the evening around 20h00 to 21h00 I feel so sleepy. :-) and no, I do not smoke any funny substances :-) I wonder if it might be due to a shortage of vitamins because I also constantly feel as if I have no energy.
