Treating Dry Eyes without drops?!

Dec 2017 | There are two strategies that I use to treat dry eyes... #1 Add a drop to effect change to the surface of the eye and/or #2 Try and get the body to produce healthier tears.   This blog post lists methods used to get your own body to produce better tears.
1] Heat - Using warm compresses for 5min twice a day will help move natural oils onto your ocular surface.  However, most people do not do compresses long enough or consistent enough to create change.  A warming mask like - Bruder - and lid massage is very useful for this.  There are in-office treatments also available.
2] Omega3 - A good quality Omega3 ~2000mg per day will help provide the building blocks that your body needs for well-balanced tears.
3] Water - Drink plenty of water!
4] Humidity - Consider a humidifier for dry environments and when sleeping
