Brief Answer:
Vitamin A supplementation likely to be needed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Pataday drop (prescription medicine) might help. Vitamin A supplements (Vitamin A oil orally or in injectable form) in appropriate doses might be necessary. Visit to an ophthalmologist is advisable.

Let me know if I could help further.
