Eyes connect to the nose via the lacrimal ducts. However, I could not explain why your eyes get dry once the rhinosinusitis resolves unless you have a lot of tearing when having the allergy then tear production becomes less right after. You just have to use artificial eye drops if the dry eyes are expected. Take care.
