Use an over-the-counter (OTC) artificial tears product.

• If your eyes feel dry after reading, knitting or staring at the computer for a particularly long time, use an artificial tear product. Since several brands are available, try a few to see which ones your eyes respond to best. You may need to combine more than one brand for relief. Realize that artificial tears aren't substitutes for natural tears; they simply relieve dryness by replacing the outer tear film layer. If you have chronic dry eyes, you'll need to keep using artificial tears even if your eyes are symptom free. Some things to look for include:

• Lubricating ingredients called hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), glycerin, or polysorbate. These mimic tears because they have a similar surface tension which lets drops stick to the surface of the eye.

• Preservative free drops which can reduce the risk of allergy or sensitivity of already dry eyes.

• Eye ointments which are useful lubricants during long periods when you can't use artificial tears. OTC eye drops, like Systane, can be used four to six times a day or as needed.

Try medicated drops.

• Your eye doctor can prescribe medicated drops after examining the cause of your dry eyes.These medications are substitutes for tears. These medications, like Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose and Carboxy Methylcellulose, consist of an artificial tear and other substances to lubricate the eyes. These drops relieve the symptoms. But, you'll need to reapply them frequently, four to si times daily or as needed. If you're prescribed a gel, you'll need to apply it once or twice a day.

• Always follow your doctor's recommendations about dosage.

• If you wear contacts, take them out before applying the drops. Reinsert your contacts 30 minutes after using the drops.

Get an ointment.

• Ointments are usually used to lubricate the eyes, but several types exist. Antibiotic ointment can be used to treat chlamydia conjunctivitis, dry eyes caused by diseases of the glands that make the lipid layer of tear film, or swelling from inflamed lids. Ointments are often used to lubricate the eyes during long periods of time when artificial tears can't be applied (like while you're sleeping).

• Common over the counter eye ointments are also available. You may need to try several before finding an ointment that effectively relieves your symptoms.

Follow the 20-20-20 Rule:

• Every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Giving your eyes short muscle breaks like this can postpone—or even stave off—eye fatigue and strain.

Eat foods for your eyes.

• Current medical research shows that the vitamins play a role in eye health. Excessive use of the eyes means you need more vitamins and minerals. If you have eye fatigue, try to balance your diet with more foods that will help your eyes. Eat more coarse grains, cereals, green vegetables, carrots, squash and other gourds, potatoes, beans, and fruit. These foods are high in vitamins, protein, and cellulose, which help strengthen the eyes. Eat more foods with vitamins A, B, C, and E, as well as zinc, lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene

• These include:

• Foods high is vitamin C, such as broccoli, cantaloupe, cauliflower, guava, bell peppers, grapes, oranges, berries, lychees, and squash

• Foods high is vitamin E, such as almonds, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, spinach, peanut butter, collard greens, avocados, mango, hazelnuts, and Swiss chard

• More sources of vitamin B, such as wild salmon, skinless turkey, bananas, potatoes, lentils, halibut, tuna, cod, soy milk, and cheese

• Foods high in lutein and zeaxanthin, such as leafy green vegetables.

Drink more water.

• Keeping your body hydrated can help keep your eyes moisturized as well. Drink 10 to 15 cups of water every day, which can help relieve dry eyes by increasing blood circulation to them. It can also help eliminate toxins from the lymph fluid in the eyes.
Increasing fluid intake can also provide your body with the moisture it needs to increase tear production.
