    It is really bothersome to have the excessive dry eyes. Usually sitting in front of the computers for a long time with little rest will make your eyes get dry. At the same time, lack of vitamin C will also make your eyes get dry. In order to stop it, you could use the eye drops to moisture the eyes. It will be helpful. You should drink more water.

    Dry eye syndrome is the result of a lack of tears production or poor quality of tears.Many problems lead to poor quantities or qualities of tears.The common causes are: 1.aging.

    So many reasons can cause dry eyes, even dry air, winding or other environmental conditions can cause dry eyes. Others such as menopause, disease which affect tear film can also lead to dry eyes. As far as I am concerned, using too much computer or other electronic products will also have this problem. If your condition is not serious, I suggest you try artifical tear drops. And buy a humidifier, which can make air around you more moist. And have a rest every one hour to relax your eyes. If your condition is serious, you may take a surgery.
