Remedies for dry eyes include using over-the-counter artificial tears, taking omega-3 supplements and applying a warm compress to the eyes, says Fox News. Artificial tears are best for everyday use. They do not blur vision, and they add temporary moisture to the eyes.
A lubricating eye ointment is applied to the eye in a thin layer, and it supplies long-lasting relief, notes Mayo Clinic. However, because the ointment can cause blurred vision due to its consistency, it is recommended for use at bedtime. An eye doctor can prescribe prescription eye drops to treat chronic dry eye syndrome, states Fox News.
