    Ok ok, I know this title is EXTREMELY weird but when I turn a fan on, the cold air blasting in my face (even from a distance) really irritates my eyes. They either start itching really badly or watering a lot.

    Does anyone else have this or do you think I should get it checked out?
    I definitely don't have hay fever so I can rule that out entirely.

    Yeah it'll just be your eyes drying out - don't have it going to your face directly at all.

    Well I suppose another option is to move the fan so it hits the side of your head rather than the front? Although personally, I find a fan works better pointed at your torso rather than your head. Maybe it's just me. :dontknow:

    Dust, pollen, drying your eyes out. Try rinsing them out with water?

    I guess you'll just need to keep trying new positions until you find one that works. :yes:
