Dry eye disease is gaining attention in the field of health and eye care research lately. With the advent of electronic gadgets dry eyes are becoming more prevalent and require immediate attention both in adults and children. Children from the infancy are exposed to near gadgets like mobile phones and tabs, when we consider their life span and the time that would be spent on these devices leaves us concerned and worried regarding the visual demand and misuse of eyes. Prevention being better than cure leads us to consider the role of dietary essential as a potential option to prevent from dry eyes. There are various reasons for dry eyes and this review is carried out with the aim of throwing light on the dry eye due to evaporative loss of tears which may or may not be associated with inflammatory conditions and the impact of powerful dietary supplements like vitamin A, vitamin D, omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fatty acids on dry eye.
