In brief: Punctal plugs

If there is no inflammation on the surface of the eye and no allergies, punctal plugs may be a solution.
Theses are small devices that are placed in the lids to slow the drainage of tears keeping the eyes better lubricated. See your eye doctor to see if they are right for you.

In brief: Dry eye

You will likely need drops but punctal plugs, warmcompresses, oral doxycycline, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements are valid treatment options in certain patients.
