Ways to Prevent Dry Eye Syndrome
Regular eye examinations

Stress can cause increased blood flow and heat in the face, which can naturally affect the eyes and increase pressure.
Good posture can help avoid positions that can increase intraocular pressure.
No smoking or alcohol
Drinking alcohol and smoking dehydrates the body, including in the eye. This can make it difficult to control moisture levels in the eyes and increase pressure.
