Is it possible to sunburn your eyes?

obviously I'm not staring at the sun, but it seems every time my face gets burned, my eye feel like someone poured salt in them.

It is possible to sunburn your eyes. It is widely known that excessive UV-A and UV-B rays causes sunburn and skin cancer. However, fewer people realize they also cause sunburned eyes. You can visit the www.wisegeek.com/can-my-eyes-get-sunburned.htm website for more information.

Yes, your eyes can be affected by the sun. Especially your eyelids. Usually when eyelids are sunburned, they feel tight and sore. Not sure about salt unless you have sweat falling in your eyes.
Sunglasses with ultra violet ray protection would be your best bet.
