To find out what happened to your husband, of course, a direct examination by a doctor is needed. Please advise your husband to see a doctor.

In the meantime, advise your husband to use eye drops containing artificial tears to prevent dry eyes. Avoid exposure to air and air pollution.
Hope this information is helpful.
