Hi, it might be stress related or just non specific. Use cold compressor like ice bags for soothing effect on eyes. If problem persists or aggravates consult with ophthalmologist.

Are you using computer and mobile for long hours? Off late have had late nights and less sleep with increased burden of work? If yes then this chod be a simple case of fatigue. Adequate rest and cold compress should do the trick.
