    Yes. Evening primrose oil can help people with dry eyes. In fact, evening primrose oil is made from a primrose, a small wildflower. The seeds of the flower contain rich gamma-linolenic acid and linoleic acid, both of which are essential fatty acids. So, proper use of Primrose oil can improve symptoms of dry eye syndrome.
