Before answering your query, I would like to know a few more details.
1) Are you eye lids swollen?
2) Are they watering?
3)Is there any itching?
4) If they are not swollen, do you only feel they are heavy?
Hope to hear from you soon.
Wish you good health,

Headache, my eyes feel heavier then normal but I don't know if their tired heavy or just heavy. (Kinda feel like small weights) My eyes aren't swollen, there not watery or itchy, i would say more dry.

Thanks for the follow-up information.
From the description that you have given, the most common cause for your problem are:
1) Allergic catarrh
2) Dry eye.

Both the conditions present with more or less similar complains.

As far as the treatment is concerned, you should use artificial tears eye drop. Mellose or refresh eye drops will also act good on you.
Wear eye glasses while you are driving and take adequate rest at night.
Avoid working on computer or staring at TV as it will strain your eyes.
Do not wash your inside of eyes , as it will increase the dryness.
Do get a eye check up to assess your visual acuity when ever you have time.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
