  • When working outdoors;
  • To relieve allergic reactions;
  • If you are taking certain medicines that suppress the normal function of the lacrimal gland;

Eye drops are recommended for older people and those who spend long hours in front of computer screens. According to research by Noelle Brennan and Nathan Efron, women who use oral contraceptives are also at high risk. Women who don’t use the pill are less likely to suffer from insufficient tear production.

The researchers also found that dry eyes are more common than itching. Scientists believe that the main reason for the discomfort is that people wear contact lenses for a long time. If the person changes the lenses frequently, the problem of dry eyes can be avoided.
