The worst in the morning, when eyelids are sticked and very difficult to open them. It is more painful in the morning. Sometimes eye pain acompanied with slight headache . Eye pain is not very severe, it changes from discomfort to mild pain, but it is very bodering. Sometimes awakeining in the night. No blurred vision , no vision changes, except that I started to lose my focus on close reading and have to remove the paper a little bit away.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It is because of the stress on muscles to focus.. You definitely require glasses for reading..
You may be having a dry eye problem also..
You can use some lubricating eye drops and gel at bedtime..
Just after waking up wash your eyes with cold water and you can use some ice packs for relief over the eyes...
