Dryness of eyes is due to insufficient secretion of tear which consist of water, lubricant, mucous etc. Dryness is also known as Xerophthalmia which usually happens due to lack of vitamin ‘A’. Additional causes are menopause, rheumatoid arthritis, or structural defect within eyelids. Homoeopath generally treats these cases by considering causes signs, symptoms, modalities, etc. Homoeopaths frequently prescribe medicines like Aconite, Argentum nitricum, Allium cepa, Belladonna, Clematis, Euphresia, Lycopodium, Physositigma, Ruta, Senega, Sticta, Sulphur, etc.

Dry eye is a much researched condition in ophthalmology.
It is,basically due to
1. Less tear formation
2. Reduced secretion of an oily substance from some glands in your eyelids.
Less tears can be due to problem in your tear glands which can be a accompaniment to certain arthritic problems.
Reduced oily substance is due to less functioning of meibomian glands in your lids, or change in consistency of the oily substance, so that it can't come out of the glands. Or due to some diseases of the eyelid margin called blepharitis.
Treatment ....
Homeopathy med for reduced tears most commonly bryonia. But do consult a homoeopath .
Medicine for less or altered oily substance is taking omega 3 fatty acid supplement, or eating flax seeds, 1 tsp twice a day. For one month.
Medicine for lid margin problems... scrubbing lid margins with cotton dipped in warm water.
Homeo med for inflammatory conditions of lids. Consult homeopath , since there are many medicines for That condition.
