    One of the regular questions that eye doctors hear from patients is dry eyes. Dry eyes is a signal that body dehydrates. Drinking more water can help dry eyes. We suggest you drink 8-10 glasses of water every day. If you live in a dry or windy climate, the amount should be more. But we suggest you drink water moderately. Besides, it is bad for your eyes to drink much water before you go to sleep, which can cause eye pouch.

    When we don't drink enough water, the body can adapt in the short term but we may start to experience mild dehydration symptoms, such as fatigue and headaches. However, in the long term, chronic dehydration can lead to much more serious health conditions. Water is the main lubricant for the eyes and proper hydration can help prevent glaucoma and other eye diseases. And it is the main vehicle for the transport of of substances throughout the body, including the circulation of blood, the digestion of food, and the elimination of toxins through the liver, kidneys, bladder, bowels, skin and lungs—just to name a few of the organs. Water brings oxygen, the most essential nutrient, to the cells and takes toxins and metabolic waste away.
