(HealthDay News) - Dry eyes can be triggered by aging, eyestrain, exposure to sun, wind or smoke, or injury.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine offers these suggestions to help soothe dry eyes:
Use artificial tears, or other moisturizing eye drops or ointments.

Avoid smoking, and exposure to secondhand smoke.

Avoid direct exposure to wind or air conditioning.
Use a humidifier in your home, particularly during the dry winter months.

Rest your eyes, and blink often.
