    Well, yes, chia seeds can be good for dry eyes. Generally speaking, dry eye occurs when the eyes don't produce enough to tears to stay properly lubricated. And you should know that dry eye syndrome can lead to pain, damage to the cornea, and some loss of vision. So we can say that it can be kind of dangerous. Also, because of dry eyes, a stinging, burning, or gritty feeling in the eye, excess watering of the eyes, followed by periods of dryness, a stringy discharge from the eye can be possible. But there are many ways to treat it. For example, preliminary research suggests that omega-3 fatty acids show promise as a natural approach to dry eye relief. Also, Chia seeds are very rich in omega 3 essential fatty acids. So we can also use chi seeds oil to treat dry eyes. and that can be effective.
