Artificial tear: You need to apply artificial tears to your eyes regularly (3-5x daily, preferably preservative-free) . For more severe cases, Rx eye drops may be needed. Wearing large glasses to shield the eyes from the wind may be helpful. It is however unusual for a person of your age to have dry eye issue.
