Watering eyes

The last few years, my eyes have been watering. My eye Dr. says that it is because when I sleep my eyes do not shut all the way. This means that my eyes dry out during the night, and the watering in the morning, is because my eyes are dry and they are trying to moisend them back to normal. I have tried all kinds of dry eye drops, and lately I am using a eye oinment you put on at night before I go to sleep. The Dr. has said if this doesn't work, I will have to go on Ratassis (sp) for the rest of my life. I don't want to go this root, so is their anyone who has another idea that I could use? The oinment works sometimes, other times it doesn't?

Re: Watering eyes

hi ginger,
using restasis is a choice you make not your doctor. tell him no. do you know for sure that you sleep with open eyes? suggest a trip to your gp for a blood test for sjogrens. i use eye drops 4 to 10 times a day. in the mornings an eye wash is soothing and helps too.
also check all your meds for side affects like dryness.
my sandy eyes feel empathy for your sandy eyes. rather uncomfortable.
peace,
blue
ps. there are also temp. plugs or perm. plugs for drains in eyes. that will be my next step. i tried restasis and we don't jel well at all. giggle.
