    Well, generally speaking, it is annoying to have dry eyes. And dry eyes can just make your eyes become more sensitive. So your eyes may suffer from eye infection easily. To get your eyes moist, you can use the artificial eye drops to keep your eyes moist. For example, some brands like Visine, Refresh, Soothe and Systane can be perfect to keep your eyes are moist. Also, the ordinary OTC eye drops for dry eyes are good to keep your eyes hydrated. So you can just have a try.
