Dry eyes can be a real irritation and are common in people who are guilty of excessive or improper contact lens wear.
Now studies have shown that food rich in omega-3 fatty acids reduce the incidence of dry eye syndrome.
A good source is oily fish such as salmon and sardines, walnuts, spinach, free-range eggs and flaxseed or canola oil. If you don't particularly enjoy seafood, taking an omega-3 supplement might also help.
Take at least 90mg (for women) and 160mg (for males) of marine-sourced omega-3 every day.
