Dear Yogesh,there could be either dryness of your eyes,or some allergic reaction.there could be some common reason like,excessive dryness of eyes due to using computer,some hair oil you are using,some local cream or shampoo you may using.If your are working on computer many hours in a day ,please take a break of couple of minutes every hour and close your eyes.Wash your eyes with water 3-4 times in a day.Also look for dandruff in your hair.Please do not put any eye drops without consulting your doctor.take care.

Hello, I am 32 yrs and a software developer. I am lately suffering of dry eye problem which is also causing constant eye flickering (left side only!). Moreover, I have difficulty opening my eyes back after closing it. I know that staring at a screen during long period can cause this problem but my work leaves me no choice. However, I have not been necessarily working more lately(the same amount of screen exposure daily as I am used to). May I take optical drops to alleviate the situation or is the problem more serious and need medical attention? Also, can this be caused by diet as I have been fasting some time back. Please advise.
