Dry eye: there are many causes of dry eye. Many cases of dry eye require other forms of therapy besides artificial tears. Fish oil by mouth is often helpful. Scrubbing your eyelashes with baby shampoo and hot water is helpful as well. Sometimes other therapy is needed as well. These therapies would require assistance from an ophthalmologist.
