I just started sparring and I've found that my eyes are kind of sensitive. A lot of times they tear up and feel like they're going to shut. Yesterday, I felt like I could barely hold my eyes open after a couple of rounds...luckily, my trainer had us going only to the body for the next round so I had time to recover.

Is this normal for someone starting out, or something to be worried about? Will my eyes get used to it if I spar more?

Either your opponent is thumbing you in the eye, you're getting hit a lot in the nose making your eyes tear or you're getting hit in the eye. Pick up your defense and keep your hands up.
