This is a tough one. There are any number of tear supplements out there -
Tears Naturale II is a good one. Unfortunately, soft lenses act like sponges
in a dry environment (which is why they are not popular here in Arizona). If
the gtts don't work - you might get your ophthalmologist to put some temporary
plugs into your lower tear ducts to keep the tear on the eye longer. If that
doesn't work you'll have to switch to gas permeable lenses.
