I have not been diagnoised with Sjorgren's but have Hashimoto's Thyroid disease and Celiac Disease.
I have terribly dry eyes upon awakening........
My Eye doctor said it is due to my Autoimmune disorders and he recommended I have these plugs put in my tear ducts to conserve eye fluid. I went ahead and tried the temporary ones which are made of Collegen. It really helped immediately. I could tell mostly when they were disolved after 10 days that my eyes were back to terribly dry.
I have come to you on this board because I notice in the brochure that Sjorgrens is listed as having this problem and these plugs are recommended to anyone that has this. So I figured someone on here has tried them.
The permenent ones are plastic and different than the temp collegen ones.
Any insight or advice? Thank you, Oleander
