@ashby1947 Yes, everything you wrote is very helpful. I will be calling Medicare and asking for help/clarification.

Hi Deborah – I'm glad you are taking some steps to benefit your eyes. I also use an Eye Mask for Dry eyes (I got mine from my doc, but Amazon, Walgreens, etc have them). I use it for about 10 minutes @ day and it helps stimulate the meibomian glands. The Cleveland Clinic is good. I had a consultation there a number of years ago (not eyes). You might want to consider calling the Institute and inquiring about a second opinion – how to go about it, will it be paid for, etc. Your previous doc shouldn't be upset, and if he is, all the more reason to say good bye. My Glaucoma doc suggested I get a 2nd opinion when I was having a serious issue. Persevere, you will get better! Sue
