- Electrolyte Drinks. Not all drinks that claim to help restore proper hydration are healthy. Many of the electrolyte drinks, such as Gatorade, contain massive amounts of sugar. This sugar is important for both taste and electrolyte absorption in the body. These drinks should only be used when excessive sweating has occurred from physical stress.
For Daily Hydration, which is what is needed for dry eye sufferers, you should choose options with little to no sugar, but still help with hydration. We have found both Dry Eye Drink and Hydrus to be good options for daily consumption without the sugar.
