To be able to get hold of the right kind of medicine for your eyes, you first need to determine the reason why your eyes are sore. Your eyes are one of the most sensitive parts of your body, so if there is something wrong with them, you need the correct diagnosis straight away.

What causes eyes to become sore?

  • Hay fever
The most common source of sore eyes is hay fever. This affects a large percentage of the population, depending on each individual's reaction to certain pollen spores in the air. This will cause an itchy nose, sneezing and itchy eyes. You can buy many forms of medication to counter the symptoms, and these can be bought from supermarket chains and pharmacists.

  • Conjunctivitis
If you're eyes are caked in grit and sometimes sticky with some form of mucus-like discharge, then you may have a form of conjunctivitis. It is recommended that you immediately see an eye doctor or your local GP, so that they may prescribe the right medication. You should not simply buy a medicine that you think will work. The medicine will come in the form of tablets or eye drops, depending on what medication will work best for you as an individual.

  • Eye strain
Sometimes, your eyes can become sore from something as simple as eye strain. This can come around from jobs requiring working in low-light conditions or staring at a computer screen for extended periods of time. You should go see an optometrist if this persists, so that he may see if you require some form of prescription glasses, to help making focusing easier, thus reducing the strain on your eyes.
