Should I Avoid Artificial Tears for My Dry Eyes?

Everyone produces tears.  Tears are the body’s way of protecting the eyes, showing emotion, and keeping the eyes healthy.  However, when we produce too many tears, they can wash away the protective tear film over the eye.  When this occurs on a regular basis, the eyes can become dry, irritated, red, and even infected.
