Suggest remedies for dry eye

default
Posted on Wed, 18 May 2016
Question: This last year I have been experiencing more dry eye than ever. Sometimes I wake up with dry eye. My lab work is normal and I just had an MRI of the abdominal area, which I get to monitor a cyst in my pancreas. The cyst is stable. My wife has sjogrens but I don't think it is contageous. Please advise

Brief Answer:
Lubricant eye drops

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

Lubricant eye drops(REFRESH TEARS) are to be used , as you have seen in your wife's case. Lubricant gels will also yield good response when used at least twice a day..

You have to ascertain that you do have dry eye.
Cyst in pancreas is not related to dry eye.

Any further query in this regard, please do get back to me.
