    In recent years, Japanese researchers found that caffeine can treat the dry eye. The researchers had a study on 78 patients with dry eyes. And the results showed that the tears of patients who taking the pills contained caffeine would increase significantly. But the researchers said that the focus is not only just in caffeine, the ability of metabolism of caffeine is also very important. So we can not definitely say that caffeine can treat dry eye, because different people have different function of metabolism. So, according to your own condition of absorption of caffeine to judge this statement is a wise action.

    It could be. The dry eye means that there is no enough tears can be produced from the eyes. Usually, the aging is the most nature reason, also the environmental factors and hormonal changes can make dry eyes. Though there are some methods can be used to treat the dry eyes, such as artificial tear drop. It would produce side-effect as well. As is known, if we take too much caffeine once, it's harmful for our health. However, the caffeine could stimulate tear gland to produce more tears. And the quantity of caffeine should be taken depend on the person's weight and health condition.
