Brief Answer:
It won't cause eye dryness. Get it checked from ophthalmologist

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting in HCM.
Cilacar contains cilnidipine is a safe antihypertensive medication.
But eye dryness is not a known complication of this medicine.
I guess this is some other non related reason behind the dryness of eyes other than cilacar.
You can use artificial tear drops to put in eyes and it will be better if you consult an ophthalmologist to find the exact reason for dryness.
I hope I have answered your question well.
If you have any questions kindly ask me back.
Thank you
