Dry eyes can be managed, if not cured, through treatment. Increasing the amount of tears through artificial means such as eye drops can clear up many of the symptoms of the condition. Blocking the ducts that drain tears is another way to keep moisture available to the eyes. The quantity of tears produced by the eyes can be increased either through medicated eye drops or by changing your diet to include more fatty acids.
