Aloe for Dry Eye?
Question: Is aloe an effective remedy for dry eye?
Answer: Although some websites recommend using aloe in the eye as a remedy for dry eye, this recommendation appears to be based solely on experimentation on eye cells in the laboratory and not on clinical studies in people. See the Aloe Supplements Review for more details about this and other uses of aloe as well as our top choices for aloe pills and aloe liquids.
There is some evidence that oral supplementation with fish oil or flaxseed oil may help reduce symptoms of dry eye.
