Tired, Dry Eye: Dry eye is common. Trick is to rejuvenate tear film (has 3parts) apply heat to eyelids without burning your skin (hot towel in hot water; avoid pushing on eye); re-heating when towel gets cold (like hot towel push ups), it will open the meibomian gland and use artificial tears 4x/day. Headaches: med side effects; dehydration; gluten senstitivity, etc; see eyedoc2020.Blogspot.Com.
