Hello,

Thank you for the question. I am Dr.A.S.Desai, certified ophthalmologist and I look forward to answering this question for you.

If you have dry eyes then it is better to get your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist for a closer look. There can be different causes for dry eyes though evaporative cause is the commonest.

It is recommended to use artificial tear eye drops for supplementation. These are available over the counter such as Refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day for about a month, to both eyes.

Do remember to rate this response positively if it was up to your expectation/satisfaction. Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any.

Regards

Hello Bonnalee Davis,

Thank you for the reply.

The jumping of the left eye seems more like eyelid twitching. If it is more like twitching of the eyelids then I guess you can wait and watch as most often the twitching disappear naturally.

Hope this helps!

Have a good day and a wonderful new year 2018!

Regards

Dr.Desai
