Re: All RCE suffers...I need advice
I am happy to have found this thread. I hope all is going well with you, Reyne. I have been having problems with RCE for about a year, due to a fingernail scratch injury. The muro drops and ointment worked for a while, but I had minor then severe recurrences. I started wearing a "bandage contact lens" on Dec 15. This has been a mixed blessing, since it seems to offer some protection, but also causes some irritation due to dryness in wintertime. I had to remove it last night due to a major erosion--just too uncomfortable to keep it in. My doctor is generally encouraging and empathetic. My spouse, not so much.
What are others using in addition to muro to offset dryness, if anything? My doctor did not give suggest anything for dryness until I posited that dry heat/cold weather was exacerbating my erosions. Staying on top of the dryness seems to be key to preventing erosions.
