Burning of eyes

My wife is experiencing burning of eyes. Esp in the evening time. She has glasses and -3.5 number, she uses refresh tears to cool the eyes. She's been using this for long time. But since couple of days the burning has increased. She has tried cucumber slices, dipping eyes in cold water etc. What do you suggest?
