Are anyone's eyes bothered by the cold wind?

It's getting in the mid 20s where I live now days. I wear Rx glasses. Even my Rx wrap around sunglasses don't help much better. However, the cold air blowing on my eyes when biking makes them terribly irritated. I get to work and they are all red (in the white area) and even a little imflammed around the iris.

Sometimes they get so cold when I'm biking, I'll bike with my eyes closed for a few seconds just to warm them up (don't worry about traffic, I see maybe 3 cars on my route to work).

I have these Bausch & Lomb Lubricant Eye Drops and Redness Reliever, but that burns my eyes quite a bit when they are all red. Other times this same product does not burn.

-Does anyone's eyes get like this?
-What do you do for it?
-Can the cold cause any type of damage to my eyes?
