In brief: Limit treatment

Dry eye that is significant will cause symptoms such as chronic irritation, redness and light sensitivity.
If you have no symptoms, then you might have some of the aspects of dryness but probably need little if any treatment since you have either adapted to it or have minimal dryness. This diagnosis is quite popular currently and is being promoted by drug companies to sell their products.

In brief: Second opinion

It is very difficult to be treated for a condition for which you have no symptoms.
However, it is certainly possible for you to have dry eyes with no symptoms. Many patients, especially contact lens wearers, have decreased corneal sensitivity, and do not feel the typical pain associated with dry eyes. It does not hurt to seek a second opinion to confirm that you truly have dry eyes.
