In Reply to: Re: Irritated eyes all the time! posted by Donna Rollins on January 20, 2000 at 13:57:12:

: : For several years I've had trouble with my eyes being irritated. They often are red and look awful. I've went and had eye checkups only to be told I have a condition with my tear ducts. They gave me some drops that set my eyes on fire and i saw no improvement. I was told that I may need some procedure did that requires shunts to be inserted in my tear ducts. I have a lot of people tell me this is very painful and that many people after having it did, still have this problem. Perhaps allergies or something. I can get up in the morning after a good nights rest and have to put moisture drops in first thing. The eyes are still red. I can go all day with the feeling of irritated eyes, actually to the point of me squinting my eyes often. Later in the evening, I look like a have been a drunk my eyes are so red. Moisture drops only help for the few minutes after i put them in. I'd like any advice on this problem. Thank you!

My Doctor has ordered Tetra-Tears for me to use. I am to use them for a mnth and then
he wants to put in a Temporary Plug. What are the adverse effects of this. Does this bring on
Glucoma? And are there any other effects to watch for. Thank you. Elma Ryan
