I'm an ophthalmologist. You need to get some thick ophthalmic lubricating ointment to put in at bedtime every night. And then wear a patch over it.

Only if it's painful. If it's just red, probably not an issue. If it really gets dried out, there's a higher risk of infections, and the ointment is just more convenient since it lasts longer than drops.

Good question the tear layer has three parts. The lowest layer is the mucus layer produced by goblet cells, and it contains lots of immunoglobulin A which is responsible for preventing most infections. If the tear film is totally absent, people are at high risk for bacterial infections.
