In brief: No

Exercise will not improve dry eye.
Dehydration induced by exercise without adequate hydration will actually make it worse.

In brief: Dry eye treatment

Exercising will not have a significant effect on 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.
