Treating dry eyes: It is common to treat dry eyes temporarily to help with more acute symptoms and inflammatory changes on the eye surface. Chronically, it's better to maintain your eye health using artificial tears and a prescription eyedrop called restasis. It works very well to relieve dry eye problems. Eyelid twitching can be associated with dry eyes, but there are other possible causes as well.
