hi.. Dryness of the eyes can lead to complications which can be dangerous. There are various moisturising eye drops that can provide symptomatic relief.  Usually the well known causes of dryness affects both the eyes.  Since the symptoms are on only one eyes you may a localised cause for your problem. This could be a neurological problem. Hence I would suggest you to consult an ophthalmologist for evaluation and complete treatment.

My youngest son is 3 years 6 months. On Friday when we got hom efrom daycare my family and I noticed his eyes were crossed. There we no accident reports from daycare. We thought since my 6 year old had just learned to cross his eyes that little brother might be mimicing. It is Sunday his eyes are still crossing. He complains that his right eye hurts. The right eye is the one that is not focusing correctly the other eye seems fine. When covering each eye he can see out of both. He doesn t seem to stumble but has run into the wall a few times. Should we be really worried? OUr other kids eye doctor is just that not a specialist, should we try to find a pediatric optomitrist to take him to right away? Very worried please help.
