Thanks for your query.

From symptoms I can think of two possible conditions:
1. Allergy
2. Infections

In this condition you will have some kind of irritation or itching around the eyes it will also be associated with other allergic symptoms like sneezing, running nose etc though not essentially required for the diagnosis

As you have this for a long period it doubt this as a possibility. But just to mention it could be iridocyclitis or uveitis too.

As I am not able to do an examination I cannot comment on the exact diagnosis of you condition.

Since you have these problem for a long time (9years) I suggest you to consult and Ophthalmologist for a complete eye examination, who after examining you will start on the required treatment.

I hope my answer has been adequate and informative. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
