Hi

I've had this problem for about 18 months now and i just can't figure out what is wrong. I have constant aching/pain in the back of my eyes, and even though they feel a bit dry they are watery too (even water proof mascara ends up under my eyes in less than an hour), and they feel so irritable I can't help but blink a lot and I feel tired all the time. It's not worse at any particular time of day, it's all day every day even when I first wake up. It's ruining my life as it so annoying and its ruining my confidence, I never feel like going out anymore because I'm always tired and always end up looking like a panda anyway.

I've had an eye test and I mentioned my problem but they said my vision is near to perfect so they don't think it would be strain even though I do work on a computer, and they couldn't find anything else wrong. I've also been to the doctor and tried some artificial tears but that doesn't really help either. I'm going to go back to the doctor and insist that I be referred to an eye specialist, does anyone have similar issues/ any ideas what might be wrong?

Completely fed up

Cheers
