I have tried using tear drops, but they do not help.

Dry eyes can be just annoying, but they can also be a sign of serious diseases. Please see your eye doctor for a diagnosis. Prescription eye drops may be much more effective if dry eyes are the only issue, but more importantly, he or she may catch an eye disease early and prevent damage.
Take care,

Hello,
It is a definite possibility that your dryness is due to a lack of blinking due to prolonged staring at the computer screen.
There is a chance that you might be suffering from a syndrome called dry eyes. Hence, it would be most prudent that you visit an eye specialist to ascertain the exact cause of your dryness and hence the right treatment protocol.

Warm Regards,

I suggest seeing a eye dr to make sure nothing serious is going on with your eyes. I have had diabetes over 38yrs n have dry eyes at night. I use to use systain but now using Refresh recommend by my eye specialist. I get the jell kind for it lubricates my eyes throughout the night while sleeping.

Your eye doctor can help. First by determining if disease is involved and also by prescribing a treatment.

In my case two things contribute to my dry eyes -- being on the computer a lot (because we tend not to blink enough when staring at a screen) and also my cpap machine with some air escaping into my eyes. No disease conditions, thank goodness, but a special eye drop is helping a lot.

Yes do see your eye doc..I wear contact lenses and am on the computer all day. I also have glucoma and take two different drops eceryday. My eyes feel like I have something in them, almost like an eyelash or something but I dont. My dr says it is very dry eyes. I do the sustain balance in the morning when I get up before meds and putting contacts in. Then during the day I do the refresh contacts and when I get home I take out contacts and put sustain balance in as needed. Before bed I put in again and then put med in. It has been helping. Hope u can find what helps u.

Even I suggest you to consult a good eye specialist before the condition gets worse. I had Astigmatism on my left eye two years back and was diagnosed at See by Intravision in Oakville, a Lasik surgery centre in Milton. Before doing this treatment, I suffered from severe headaches, eye fatigue and fluctuating vision. But the surgery has effectively corrected my eye condition. You too can go for any such treatments if the condition still remains the same.

Make sure your eyeglasses are sitting on the bridge of your nose and not squeezing the tear ducts. Mom always pushed her glasses up, blocked the tear ducts and so they put tubes in. The glasses pushed the tubes out of the tear duct! Just fix the glasses and you won't need that.

If your eyelids seem stuck to your eyes in the morning, you likely have dry eyes. The only thing that really helped me was Restasis, but my eye doctor says that insurance will not pay much now, and Medicare and Medicaid will pay nothing.
Other than that, it could be an eye infection or even that you are allergic to makeup.
