@lioness That’s a great suggestion for cleaning the outer lids. Thank you! In my case, it wasn’t that my eyelids were crusted shut, the eyeball/inner lid were so dry that they’d stick together during sleep. I had to put drops on my closed lids and work under to finally get my lids free. I also used warm compresses several times a day to stimulate tear production. The Systane Lubricant for Nighttime really was a game changer for me. @jshdma, interesting tip about the omega 3/6/9. I’ll look into that! Thank you.

I do a gentle scrub of eyelids in the shower and it seems to activate tear ducts.
