Hi,
Thank you for using Healthcare Magic.
The burning in your eyes may have been a reaction to something in the air such as a chemical or pollen. You may had had a slight allergic reaction. This can cause dizziness and fainting whilst affecting the eyes in this way.
As it only lasted 30 seconds, it is unlikely to be serious and there will probably not be any lasting problems to your health from this episode.
I hope this has helped you. If you have any further question, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Regards,
Dr K A Pottinger
