    Suggestions for Mebomitis ?

    I have been diagnosed with Mebomitis. This oily film on my eyes along with the gritty feeling makes seeing very uncomfortable. I thought I would get relief when my Dr. put me on doxicycline. It got somewhat better after being on this medication over a couple of months. However, after being on it over 6 months and with the onset of summer the bright sun and light was almost as hard to deal with as the problem itself. My Dr. told me if this worked I could be on it the rest of my life! Would this actually be safe to take it that long? It is hard for me to believe, that if any medication helps this problem, that gradually this condition would be cured. Please give me any suggestions or other medications or procedures that may prove to be better or helpful in my situation. I would enjoy hearing other readers and their experiences with this condition.
