Mostly: Ortho k is a systemic of molding mildly myopic eyes to correct the vision by wearing a series of too flat hard lenses which push the center of the eye inwards. It is a tradeoff since to maintain any improvement, you have to wear a "keeper" lens at night. It was developed as a way to keep non-professionals like optometrists in the vision correction game. It reverses when you stop the lenses. ...Read more

Lots of options: There is no one best option. What you want to use is an artificial tear drop or, if the condition is more severe, gel. The types with "get the red out" medicine I advise against.

Lubricate!: You can try lubricating the eyes with artificial tears one drop 3-4 times a day and taking oral omega 3's like evoa dry eye supplements to stimulate more and better tear production.

Could be more serious, if this does not help. ...Read more
