Help is possible: Consult your ophthalmologist. Dryness of the eyes is common and there are a variety of topical and mechanical aids to assist with this. There are also designs of contact lenses which are tolerant of eye dryness. You need more information and help.

Punctal plugs: I would try punctal plugs in both lower lids. If persistent symptoms, i would try daily contact lenses and/or restasis. See your eye doctor.
