In brief: Increase tears

Tears can be increased by adding artificial tears, slowing drainage by placing plugs in tear drainage ducts or by using medications to improve function of glands that produce tear components (restasis).
Systemic medications should be reviewed and substituted if possible alot of the make dry eye worse. Most common are antihistamines, diuretics and beta blockers. Other meds also ask your dr.

In brief: Dry eye

Your description sounds like dry eye.
Initial treatment is frequent artificial tears during the day, ointment at night, warm compresses a few times a day, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. If no improvement, you should see an eye doctor for further evaluation.

In brief: Dry eyes!

No cure, but you can start with artificial tears routinely (one drop 4 times a day every day), oral omega-3's, and warm compresses.
Next, medicated drops (restasis, mild steroid drops, NSAID drops) or punctal occlusion may be helpful.
