Dry eyes occur when your tear glands can’t produce enough tears or produce low-quality tears. The result can be a stinging, burning sensation and even blurred vision. Factors contributing to dry eyes can include age, environmental conditions, certain medications, and some health conditions.

What Can You Do?

  1. Use Artificial Tears: These over-the-counter eye drops can provide immediate relief by lubricating the eyes. There’s a variety of artificial tears available, from those for mild cases to thicker gels for severe cases of dry eyes.

  2. Take Breaks During Screen Time: Follow the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds to give your eyes a break.

  3. Wear Sunglasses: Wearing sunglasses outdoors, especially those with wraparound frames, can protect your eyes from wind and dry air.

  4. Maintain a Healthy Diet: Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids such as flaxseeds, chia seeds, fish, and walnuts can help improve eye moisture.

  5. Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water throughout the day can help to maintain moisture in your eyes.

  6. Use a Humidifier: By increasing the moisture levels in the air, a humidifier can help alleviate dry eye symptoms.

Despite these tips, if your dry eye symptoms persist, it’s essential to consult an eye care professional. Chronic dry eyes could indicate an underlying health issue that needs medical attention.
