    You can use some home remedies to treat chronic dry eyes. Try to use a hot compress on your eyes at least once a day. Then you can scrub your eyelids with baby shampoo. This way may help you relieve from dry eye. You can try this and see whether it works well on you. However, the best way to treat chronic dry eye is seeing an ophthalmologist who will take some other effective way to treat your chronic dry eye.

    For me what has helped is living on milk for eight years. I find when I eat solid food my eyes hurt. But when I live on cow milk, mostly nonfat, my eyes feel okay. So basically I live 90 or 100% on cow milk, mostly nonfat. For six years living on cow milk was sufficient to deal with my eye pain. Then about two years ago I found I was tired and I couldn't shake it. So I added going to daily Catholic Mass. And that has been sufficient, the combination of going to Mass and living on cow milk is enough to keep me reasonably healthy and my eyes feeling okay without drops. I can't exactly recommend living on milk because it hasn't been proven to be a safe diet by medical authorities. But it has worked wonderfully for me, and I don't think my body works too differently than other people's.
