I have itchy eyes, burning eyes

Itchy eyes are often associated in children with allergic blepharoconjunctivitis, which is impressive with swelling of the eyelids and conjunctiva, redness and watering of the eyes.

The presence of a foreign object in the eye can cause burning or itching of the eye with severe watering and discomfort in the strong light.

Dry eyes can lead to eye burns, although it is more commonly seen in older people.

Recurring rubbing of the eyes can also be a sign of a need for glasses. As these symptoms are not very specific and may be linked to many eye pathologies, it is recommended to perform a complete ophthalmologic examination, especially during preverbal age.
