Hi
Your concern regarding dry eyes can be easily be taken by evaluating your eyes by various tests and one can easily make diagnosis of dryness and grade it.dry ocular surface could be secondary to various conditions like allergies, pollution, thyroid disorder, autoimmune etc. you may use high quality preservative free tear substitutes till you get your eyes evaluated. Frequent washing of the eyes with clean water helps wash away allergens and pollutants.show your eyes to an eye specialist first .
Take care

dry eye is a common topic nowadays more commonly due to prolonged use of computers, stress, pollution, ageing, poor nutrition, or related to some systemic diseases like sjogrens syndrome etc, but detail examination of your eyes are required and treatment is long term, without any harm you can start with tear substitutes like systane ultra drops about 4 times daily and you also take some omega 3 fatty acid capsules, it really works.

dryness leads to mild irritation to begin with.Burning would require decongestent eye drops and is due to hyperaemia of the outer layer caused mostly due to exposure to dust and various allergies.so the treatment is protection,washing and decongestent drops

Eyes are kept moist by the tears. Hence there will be no dryness of eyes. If this tears are less than it will lead to dry eyes. Keep washing your eyes frequently with cool and clean water. you can put artificial tear eye drops avialble in the medical shop. This will relieve your dry eyes. Also avoid exposure of eyes to the dust particles, pollutants and strong winds

I suffer from dry eyes and also what my Doctor calls Blethalitis (can t spell it). I used to use a solution called Eye-lid care which I obtained on prescription. They have now stopped making this and only do wipes with the solution already on. These tend to burn when I use them. Is there any other remedy or solution I can use. I have tried the bicarb of soda but this didn t work.

I have been to two opthamologists, they both claim I have dry eye and have treated me with eye drops and tear duct plugs. I still have pain and now my eye seems to droop half way thru the day. Due to the plugs my eyes tear continually and I have blurred vision most of the time. I am on Tarceva, and am worried my cornea may be affected, since that is a possible side effect. Both doctors feel I have dry eye Can you help? Forget it!

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou
