dry eyes and thin optic nerve are not related.Iam sure you would not go blind.DRY EYES ARE DUE TO TEAR FILM ABNORMALITIES IN THE EYES.TAKE SOME LUBRICATING EYE DROPS CONTAINING CARBOXY METHYLCELLULOSE ALONG WITH TABLETS CONTAINING OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS.TRY TO BLINK AT LEAST 15 TIMES PER MINUTE IF YOU ARE WORKING ON SYSTEM FOR A LONG TIME
