: My vision is 20/20,never had any problems. Forthe last few yrs my eyes feel dry & uncomfortable until I wet them w/water when I first wake up in the morning. They feel fine for the rest of the day. I used to think it was dry air from the heater but this also happens when I dont turn the heater on? Do you know why this is? I'm a healthy 35F.
Maybe you are keeping your eyes slightly open while you sleep. You may not want to try this, but wear an eye mask a couple of nights & see if it helps. You could use eye ointment at night when you go to bed.
