Re: Dry Eyes and Swelling?
Yes, I battled Blepharitis for 1 1/2 years but it is now clear, just recently. Still do hot soaks and eyelid scrubs to keep blepharitis from returning.
Have had a problem with dry eyes for many years, but, they got worse in the last couple years.
Swelling came about gradually, eyes had the sick look but did not notice it was actually a swelling. Over time swelling got worse. Thought I had gained weight in face for awhile. Later realized my eyes were swollen and the eye doctor confirmed it.
Eyes got to where they looked like they were smaller or not open as much as before. I was getting tired of the "sick eye look", but now they are beginning to look better and more open. My eyes had always sparkled and talked for me, if you know what I mean. People noticed my eyes first. Now eyes are drab and do not sparkle, getting a little better lately.
Since the Restasis started working my eyes appear to me more open, brighter and not so much the sick eye look.
The sick eye look has aged me in the face big time. Sure hope it clears up and I look like what I think I looked like before this happened.
My eyes began to have the puffy look around them gradually but yet not the swelled look you normally would expect to see. Difficult to explain.
