Re: Best O.T. C. drops for dry eyes???
One of the best lubrication drops is Systane and that should be available otc in your area. They may also help with the inflammation but only by virtue of reducing the irritation/friction of dry eyes. (Restasis is specifically an anti-inflammatory product.) I would be inclined to use the Systane or similar drops for a few days and see if that does reduce the inflammation. If not, you really need an anti-inflammatory product and they can only be obtained by prescription.
If the artificial tears are not adequate, try talking to a pharmacist. They are usually quite helpful at suggesting alternatives to precribed medicines.
