Some things are better when you have a buddy. Like figuring out what's going on with your eyes. If they're bugging you, ask your eye doctor to take a look. After a quick exam, you and your eye doctor can chat about some options to help you manage your symptoms. Here are a few:

Artificial tears

Artificial tears

Your eye doctor may suggest over-the-counter artificial tears first. They provide temporary relief from dry eye symptoms.

Change your diet

Changes to your diet

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in foods like fish and walnuts, are great for people with dry eye symptoms.

Devices and procedures

Chat at least once a year about how your eyes are feeling. Coming prepared with questions can help you get right to the point. Better yet, bring a doctor conversation guide with you.
