Hi therr...I can understand your concern. You are doing the right thing by going for a consultation. Sometimes he could be having some mild refractory error(might be difficult for them to differentiate). Or there might be conjunctivitis or dryness of the eyes, which is causing the itching. So kindly consult a nearby ophthalmologist for further evaluation.
