Symptoms of CPEO

Hi, byu here, plan to move South by the end of the year where it is warmer longer and their is higher humidity. My work found a screen cover for one of my screens, pharm. told me that dry eye is easier to deal with in the summer due to warm weather so I dread when the air temp gets below 70. Have started to use hot showers and steam room and gym to help dry eye. Also got plugs put it, and use restasis. GenTeal (Walmart for Severe dry eye symptoms) is my eye drop of choice. Sleep really well but feel tired and also have weakness in my feet so i'm often off balance and ontop of all that have Plantar Fasciitis. I quit the gym over 6 months ago, b'c i wasn't going but b/c of my recent CPEO diagnosis and foot issues, walking hurts so I do the bike and eliptical and I'm super tired but know it will be good for me and lift my spirtis, b/c CPEO, esp. droopy eye has got me down.. Oh one last thing, I wear navigator type glasses inside (slight tint) and dark sunglasses outside.
