Are my eyes too far gone for just regular eye drops?

I have had dry eyes for 9 months! Does that much time with dry eyes need more treatment than just eye drops? I want to take Omega-3 to help with it, but I'm not sure it will work or be enough. I honestly haven't been using my eye drops and my eyes have gotten way worse! Also, I'm not too good on keeping up with hydrating with water.

My eyes are extremely dry at this point I think I should do warm eye compresses, take fish oil supplements AND do warm compresses? Do you think this could be damaging? I have noticed that going outdoors or staring too long into daylight is causing it to be worse. Should I stay inside for now?


I live in the mountains, so I'm not around people

Update 2:

Also, I just got an eye drop ointment. I'm a little to scared to use it because of the virus going around though.

    Apple cider vinegar is good for the eyes.  

    Dab a drop or two around closed eyes. 

    Apple cider vinegar is also good against viruses.  

    I think it cleans and clears blocked ducts.
