Dry eye syndrome is when the tear glands produce fewer tears.
Dry eye syndrome often occurs in people who are otherwise healthy. It is more common with older age, because you produce fewer tears with age.

Treatments may include:

* Wetting drops called artificial tears
* Lubricating ointments (in more severe cases)
* Tiny plugs placed in the tear drainage ducts to help the tears stay on the surface of the eye
* Medications such as Restasis, topical corticosteroids, and oral tetracycline and doxycycline

You could try using a lubricating ointment (such as Refresh Lacri-Lube or Refresh PM) at night, as well as the drops during the day.
