How do you deal with dry eyes?
One recommendation from my ophthalmologist that definitely works, is to wear swim goggles at night! I was amazed at how much moisture builds up inside the goggles. I may go back to doing that.

a humidifier near my bed seems to help, swim goggles sounds like a good idea but seems like they would be too uncomfortable. Helen
oh years ago it was suggested by someone somewhere to wear goggles, glad it works for you sue. i just remembered couple years ago optometrist sold me sort of eye mask with little pads that warmed up as opened and you slipped into the mask. but specialist in Toronto said no because at the time had narrow angle glaucoma and was concrned about the elastic band around eyes; so year ago i had IRIDOTOMY to release pressure in eyes but now dont know if i can wear that heated mask or not…hoenstly i have so many irons in the fire right now i dont know if i am coming or going and all drs ssooo busy re covid restrictions and i am in City of just of 50,000 with line up at door of all medical…also the optometrist got fed up with me and passed me back to his partner and i didnt have the guts to ask why! nice guys finish last , or so they say!
