Greetings, thank you for your question.

The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Based on the above information, we understand your concern about the problem you’re having. For your information, dry eyes are usually a complaint by elderly due to reduced tear secretion. If the problem is due to age, then the treatment may includes:

  • lubricating drops
  • lubricating gels or ointments
  • tear stimulating drops

Also, another tips that might help are:

  • reduce screen time and apply 20-20-20 rule which is every 20 minutes look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
  • bathe regularly with clean water
  • use room humidifers if room is dry

However, if you are young, this may indicate another underlying eye problem or even systemic diseases such as autoimmune disease, infection, corpus alienum chronic dry eye syndrome. Therefore, we would suggest that you consult a doctor to detect any underlying condition before the condition gets serious.
