Re: eye problems

Hi, ask a pharmacist if restastis is available in the UK. In the meantime if you can research on the internet what damage dry eyes can cause and print out, maybe showing them to the dr if you are again turned down might make a difference. I can't imagine not using the drops. I was so uncomfortable. Also there are organizations for Sjogren's. Contact them and they will send you literature. Usually, rheumotologists like to refer a patient to an eye dr to treat the eyes. good luck
