Suggest remedy for sharp pain in the eyes

hi, i have been on nights for the last 2 weeks and last week i noticed after my 2nd night last week i had a very red blood shot eye (right) and was experience some pain behind the eyes, it seemed to clear up over the weekend however i do still have a red like vein looking thing left in my right eye and i am experiencing quite a lot of sharp pains behind both eyes now, is this down to lack of sleep being on nights and nothing to worry about? if so can i home treat it?

Hello there,
According to what you have described its more likely your experiencing this discomfort due to strain/lack of sleep.However lack of sleep can produce only burning sensation, slight redness but donot usualy produce pain so are you sure your having sharp pain or is it discomfort/burning sensation ? also do you have a stress full work schedule?
All these do matter before coming to a conclusion.
