feels weird, keep blinking, having hard time opening my eyes

Ok Iím 13 years old and I do wear glasses. I can see pretty good and the glasses just help me see a little better. In fact I can go on through the day by not even picking them up doesn't really make a big difference. Anyway yesterday I started felling a little strange feeling in my eye. I don't know what causing it. It feels like wind is going on my eyes and I keep getting the urge to blink like 1 time even 5 seconds thatís the least!

I also am having a hard time keeping my eyes open. Its like I always want to close cause like wind is going through my eyes and it fills weird, and its getting on my nerves. It started yesterday and this is the second day and it hasnít gone away

I do use the computer A LOT and when Iím Not Iím watching TV.

But today I tried not to use them so much and see if it will make a difference but it doesnít look like it is. Could this be like soup or toothpaste in my eyes or something like that.

please help

Try this:

Get a washcloth and put some warm (almost too hot will do)tap water on it. Then fold it up quickly and put it on your eyes, with your eyes closed - and keep them closed. Then put a clean blanket or towel over the washcloth. Give yourself room to breath and hold the washcloth there for 5 minutes. This is called a warm compress. The purpose of which is to heat the tear glands in your eye that get plugged up. If your still having problems, see an ophthalmologist.

It wouldnt hurt...

I know when I do them, I put it snug against my eyelids. I believe doing so helps transfer the heat.

That is a very good suggestion. But you also need to tell your mom (or whoever you live with) about this new problem so she can take you to the doctor if it doesn't go away.
