    Yes, it is possible. When eyes are dry, we are tending to rub our eyes, not only because eyes are itching but also rubbing can help tear production and lubricate eyes. Moisturizing eye drops can help relieve the dryness and itching. But I think some home remedies are better than medication. You can apply warm compress on eyes, a few times per day to help tear production. If the air is dry, you should use a humidifier to add moist into air, which can make you feel better. Have a light diet rich in vitamins and lutei, like fresh vegetables and fruits.

    Well, yes, I have to say that dry eyes can cause your itchy eyes too. So you need be more careful about it. And generally speaking, if you do not have the necessary balance of three layers in your eyes, or if your eyes do not make enough tears to coat the eye, it is possible to get dry eyes. And when you have suffered dry eyes, some other symptoms may occur too. For example, your eyes will feel discomfort, including irritation, burning, grittiness, redness, tearing, and itchy. At this moment, you can try some ways to treat it. Of course, using some eye drops can be a good way for your itchy eyes. But also, you need to go and see the eye doctor who can give some advices.
