Other than meds, are there any other treatments that might help me?

    Besides medicated eyedrops there are tear plugs, the eyelid treatment (very expensive and insurance doesn't cover it), warm compresses, drinking electrolytes. The main thing that helped me was Restasis

      I struggle with severe dry eye, what is this eyelid surgery called, that is this that is so expensive?

    I suffer from chronic dry eye. I use Blink Thera Tears eyedrops first thing when I wake up, and right after my nightly bath (I've found that washing my face makes my eyes severely dry because it strips the oils from my eyelids)

    I ended up getting tear duct plugs in both bottom tear ducts. It helps. Now if I bend over to pull weeds out, it puts pressure on my eyes which make tears flow like I’m crying. Either I have no tears or way too many!

    My eye doctor told me there was nothing more he could do for my chronic dry eyes - other than Bruder compresses. So I’ve been reading and studying about natural remedies and causes. Long story short - I am using Colloidal Silver spray and MSM eye drops and they have been a life saver. I am so happy to share this because I know how miserable I was for many years. It was debilitating to live a normal life. I still periodically do the Bruder compress, but not dependent on it.

      please, can you share the brands of the colloidal silver spray and MSM drops so I can research what they are & where I can buy them?
