Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Repeated burning sensation in the eyes are because of allergic conjunctivitis or because of chronic conjunctivitis. Probably your complaints are because of allergic conjunctivitis.
The treatment is by antiallergic drugs like antihistaminic drugs, mast cell stabilizers and in some non responsive cases by mild topical steroid eye drops.
You need to consult your eye doctor for appropriate diagnosis and appropriate treatment according to the disease and its severity.
Thank you
