No relationship: Dry eye or ocular surface disease is not related to migraine headaches which are vascular in origin. Both are common but neither one causes the other. Restasis is useful in helping the inflammation associated with ocular surface disease but your ophthalmologist needs to determine the cause of the problem before instituting Restasis therapy.
