Dry Eyes FAQ

Q: My wife has rheumatoid arthritis, and from this very dry eyes. What are the best eye drops to use? — K.M., Canada

A: There are a variety of over-the-counter artificial tears. There are proprietary brand names and generic brand names. Try them one brand at a time and see which works for her. After a while, if one stops working, switch to a new one.

An artificial tear preparation that works for one person doesn't necessarily work for the next. Trial and error is the best way to go. — Dr. Slonim
