Re: eye problems

Hi Sparkle16,

I have been having problems with both eyes but more the left so my opthamologist plugged the left eye and gave me lubricating drops and a Pred Forte drop solution. Those were not working so I received a prescription for Restasis a few weeks ago. Though it takes 4 -6 weeks to work fully, I have already seen a difference. My eye does not hurt that much anymore and I have times when my eyes tear on their own, which is a temporary relief.

I would definitely try to get the restasis if you can. You can also use gel drops during the day but just bare in mind that your vision will be blurry for a few minutes until the solution disperses.

Hope you find some relief soon!
