    Eye dryness is a very common condition that maybe everyone could experience it sometime or somewhere. It could be some lingering symptom of pink eye or just some syndrome which always bothering you. It is usually related to less tear production or excessive tear evaporation. There are some easy actions you could adopt to reduce the discomforts. First of all, drink enough water. 90% of human body is water. We need to drink 8 cups of water to provide for daily requirement. Without water, people can't survive more than one week. Drinking water is the most convenient but also most direct way to alleviate the dryness. Secondly, use a humidifier to add moist in to the air to reduce tear evaporation. If you need to go out, it is better to wear a pair of eyeglasses to protect your eyes from damages from wind. You can also get some artificial tear drops to lubricate eyes or apply some warm saline water compress on eyes, which is effective too. Take a light diet rich in vitamins, zinc, selenium and omega-3 fatty, which are very good for the health of eyes.

    Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of the mucus membrane lining (conjunctiva) of the eye. There can be many causes of conjunctivitis but usually it is a viral or bacterial infection. Because the conjunctiva is very important in the production of the tear film, any injury, even temporary like an infection, can impair the production of tears. Hence conjunctivitis can reduce tear production and cause dry eye. Fortunately this does not usually happen because there are a lot more cells that produce tears than needed so that most patients can have a number of bouts of conjunctivas without a resulting chronic dry eye. Chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus or graft versus host disease cause a chronic, persistent conjunctivitis, which is more likely to cause a chronic dry eye. In that way, you can use some artificial tear to cure it. Hope this helpful.
