    People with dry eyes usually experience dry and itchy in the eyes. This is caused by lacking of tears in the eyes. So far, I never heard that virus can cause dry eyes. Usually, dry eyes can be caused by the environment, diseases, hormonal change as well as aging etc. And the most common treatment of dry eyes is to apply eye drops to keep eyes moist. If you want to cure it, you are suggested to take an eye examination so as to fins what going on of your eyes.
