supplements for dry eyes (not eye drops)

I was wondering if anyone here is taking supplements for dry eyes and if so, which ones.

TIA

you need to find the root cause, the strongest over the counter drops - forget the name - are very expensive. Check with an optometrist first

Go grocery store garb a chrysanthemum tea (white one or yellow ) , if you want you can add goji berry. Wash it then put into hot water. When cool down, drink it. Here totally cost $4 can drink a month. At same time use finger slight massage eye round, back bone. If chrysanthemum makes you feel better, go back to grocery store grab the supplement one, here $4.99. All of them 100% pure herbals

Heating pad? I was told by 2 optometrists that the most cause of dry eyes are by blocked tear duct. Heat helps to clear up the duct.

Bausch and Lomb has gel eye pad that you heat in microwave oven for about 10-12 seconds... probably get same result with diy warm compress.

July 13, 2017 to October 25, 2018: BOC raised rates 5 times and MCAP raised its prime rate next day each time.

2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited and waited to drop its prime rate to include all 3 drops.

I've also been suffering from dry eyes for the last 6 months or so. Here's what has been useful for me, in order of effectiveness:
  1. Blink eye drops for Contacts. I know you said "not eye drops" but so far this was the best solution for me.
  2. Drink more water. This helps A LOT. When I drink a lot during the day, I don't need the eye drops. You may be dehydrated and no know it, especially if you're not drinking water during the day. Note that other fluids (juice, coffee, tea, etc.) don't count as water.
  3. Vitamin A supplements.
Hope this helps.
