Also try to avoid direct heat, especially the heat that blows directly on your face, like a car heater for example, try to direct the flow of air away from your face. If it’s a windy day you can use glasses or glasses to help protect your eyes from the wind that immediately dries your eyes. If you already have dry eyes, you should talk to your ophthalmologist if you are struggling in the winter months, because they will tell you what else you can do to stay above your dry eyes during the winter.
