Re: Desperate for help with rare eye condition

I am so sorry for what your brother is going through. I've been going through dry eyes too, not quite that bad though. I don't believe this just happens, I do believe there is an answer even if docs are out of options. Often the eye problems are not just local, limited to being an eye problem. Eye problems can be signs of unknown food allergies, other autoimmunie diseases and even hormone imbalances (even though he is a young man). Has your primary care doc done a blood test panel to check thyroid and other blood cell and vitamin levels? Also a hormone saliva test and a thorough blood test for food allergies. Going organic is a great idea also. Cod liver an olive oil added to the diet. Also, if there is a problem with the eye lid itself, you can do a potatoe poltice on the eye lids, I'm pretty confident with that. You can just search online for directions on how to do that. Best wishes!
