Matter of fact he did. Very ingorning. I have drops of crispy drops thought it was my eyes lashes shedding different eye drops for it. Then I have to get my allergy med drops to. Can't put on my eye makeup anymore. Allergic to a lot of things. So glad to be able to talk about this.

Now that I think about it I don't think was the name of it. Can't remember. Bel I can't remember. Its not the thyroid dieses. Its isn't cancerous either. I have to check my patients Dr notes. Have a nice day.
I buy OTC drops in single use containers, preservative free. It’s only the drops in squeeze bottles that can have a contamination problem.
One day at a time. Take notes to see what works and what don’t.
I also wear sunglasses with Chambers for dry eyes. They help when you are out side and in a car. Car fans can dry your eyes.
Yesssssssssssssss! I use Restasis twice a day (prescription) and over the counter Systane Complete 2-4 times a day and it really helps. Stay hydrated and use a cool mist humidifier in your bedroom at night. God bless!
I suffered from dry eyes and my opthamologist put plugs in my tear ducts and this solved the problem. In fact, I recently had an eye exam with a different opthamologist and while she could not see the plugs, she suspected they were still in place because I am not having dry eyes currently. The plugs were put in a few years ago and were of great help to me. Good luck. You might want to ask your doctor about this, as it is a very easy and painless procedure to solve the dry eye issue.
Has anyone tried Intense Pulse Light?
@rexsan20 Is the Intense Pulse Light a procedure done by the doctor? I’ve never heard of it before. Can you explain the procedure?
I have not had it done yet. My eye doctor has talked to me about this. It is supposed to help the meibome gland. My eye doctor called last week. I plan to get back with him next week. The cost is about $1400. Its expensive but at this point I want my eyes to feel better.
The Systane Complete which one……..my eyes very very dry!!!
The Systane Complete PF that is Preservative Free works the best. I hope this helps you.
