    Do You Have Dry Eyes?
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff posted:
    If so, caffeine could help.

    Grab a cup of coffee while you read this recent WebMD article:
    Could Caffeine Help Dry Eyes?

    And what's your favorite caffeine drink?
    ElizabethTracy responded:
    I've actually found that dry eyes (when wearing contacts) are not relieved when ingesting more caffeine unfortunately.

    Just counting down the days until contacts stay moist for an entire day. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be wonderful.
    ReReBaby replied to ElizabethTracy's response:
    I have no suggeestions. My dry eyes get worse everyday. And it makes me so mad cause it effects my driving and daily activity. I get headaches cause I have to strain so hard. I have contacts and I wear glasses. And it gets worse everyday. I use a priscription that my doc. gave me and it does not work but about five minuts and dry again. My dry eyes started about two months ago.
