In brief: Dry eyes

Xerostomia can be treated with eye drops, as long as you find the cause (ex.
Medicines that cause dryness).

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.
