tired eyes?

I've been noticing later in the evenings that my eyes feel tired and dry-like. Is this something that comes normally with age or are my eyes just odd? I know a gal at work had said that as you hit 40 you start neding cheaters to see up close. And darn it she jinxed me by mentioning that, so I need to take my glasses off now to see small things.

I can't say for sure, but I know that my eyes feel dry more often now than before. I know that some medicines cause dry eyes as well as dry mouth, so if you're taking something you might want to check the side effects

It's just weird that in the evening they feel that way lately. Im only on an asthma controller and I've been on it for a few years. So IDK that is the culprit.

@3SnuggleBunnies If you've been on it for quite awhile, I wouldn't think it would start causing problems now. It could be anything, though. A little dehydration, air pollution, a touch of a virus. I wouldn't worry unless it doesn't improve or it gets worse, then you might want to see a eye doctor.

@peavey We all had pink eye last month so IDK if this is a result of the eye drops? Wich I've had before as we tend to get pink eye atleast once a year. But it's weird come 8pm ish my eyes feel dry. I haven't put any drops in them perhaps I should?

There will be plenty of things going wrong as you get older. Hopefully most will be minor.

My eyes feel dry when I don't drink enough, then as soon as I get a drink they feel better. Perhaps it's dehydration instead of old age.

You may have dry eyes. I rinse my eyes with warm water and that really helps. Resting our eyes is very important. I hope it gets better.
