Signs Of Dehydration Eyes
Dehydration eyes causes sunken eyes in children and, with toddlers and infants, the fontanel or soft spot may look sunken. Adults suffering from dehydration eyes may also have sunken eyes, and show signs of muscle weakness and confusion.
Whether mild or severe, dehydration eyes is a serious matter. When our fluid levels go below normal levels, systems in our body compete for the small amount of fluid that does exist, and each of these systems suffers.
For instance, the blood being circulated through our bodies decreases, which causes lowered blood pressure. This can trigger the heart to beat faster which helps raise the blood pressure. More severe effects can include muscle cramps, headaches, loss of consciousness, including heat stroke, and other related illnesses including death.

Dryness & Itching
Dehydration eyes are a symptom of mild dehydration. Basically, you just need to drink more water. The drops that are found in most drugstores can actually make the problem worse, over the long run. Your eyes may produce fewer tears of their own and many of the drops contain drugs that constrict the blood vessels, reducing the natural blood flow that provides nourishment to the tiny ciliary muscles.
The ciliary bodies allow the lenses inside your eyes to focus from near to far. So, dehydration and poor circulation can lead to poor eyesight, as well as other eye problems.
