Dr. Richard Wieder answered:

What could cause dry eyes?

Dry eyes

Dry_eyes
are caused by a deficiency of the tears which your eyes produce. Typically there is no specific cause found for dry eyes, but symptoms can be caused by other eye conditions, both infectious and inflammatory. If you are having significant problems, then you should see your ophthalmologist for a complete exam.

Dr. Val Zudans answered:

Best eye drop for dry eyes?

Serum tears

Dry_eyes
There are many OTC and Rx drops that work best for different sources of dry eye (as mentioned in the other answers). One of the best, though, is for severe dry eyes to make tears from your own serum. Blood is drawn, allowed to clot, centrifuged, diluted with saline, and given back to the patient. In cases that do not respond to the available treatments, this option should be discussed with MD.
