There are a number of factors which may contribute to dry eyes, such as wearing contact lenses, being in a smoky environment, or certain diseases. But fortunately, there are also a number of options which may bring relief to those who suffer from dry eyes.
If your contact lenses are causing your dry eyes consult your eye doctor to determine whether or not a different type of lens would bring you relief. Your eye doctor may also recommend the use of rewetting drops, which can return the moisture to your eye.
Other options for relieving dry eyes include:
• Avoiding smoky environments or quitting smoking if you smoke
• Taking a multivitamin rich in A, D and C
• Applying an ocular lubricant at night
