Brief Answer: Possibly due to dryness of eye Detailed Answer: Hi Namasthe Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Dear Mr XXXXXXX From the description given , it's likely that you are suffering from conjunctivitis sicca (dryness of eye causing conjunctivitis). It's quite common after exposure to dusty and hot weather of gulf countries. Instilling Artificial tears drops containing methyl cellulose one drop in each eye every 2 nd hourly will be beneficial. If the problem persists it would require assesement by Opthalmologist. Take care Best Regards Dr T Shobha Deepak MBBS, MD
