Undereye filler and dry eye question
Undereye filler should not create a problem with dry eye. In fact, if part of your dry eye issue is drooping of your lower eyelid, it is possible that filler can improve that situation if performed properly. If your dry eye problems are due to decreased tear production, filler will likely not affect your symptoms in any way. To be sure, you can always ask your ophthalmologist about their recommendations as they know your dry eye symptoms the best.

2. Restylane should definitely last longer than a week, if you have had a bad experience with restylane, then I would suggest a different filers (Juvederm).
3. Usually filler lasts longer in the lower eyelids (8-10 months).
All the Best!
