If I could give my mom anything for Christmas it would be something to help her dry eyes. She has had damage in some glands that produce the tears that coat the eyes. Nothing has worked so far. She has tried this and that for at least two years now and nothing has helped. No RX eye drops for dry eyes...not pills...nothing, no shots...has worked. She has seen specialist in this area and so far that isn't working either. At first they thought it was allergies...she went in for allergy testing and had some so took allergy shots for a year..didn't help. The eye doctor and her medical doctor have searched every lead and tried pretty much everything but she has no relief at all...
I don't know if any one on here has experienced dry eyes but its torture. Bright lights kill her eyes. She can't read very often anymore due to the eye strain. the computer is harder and harder on her. She has to wear special wrap around sunglasses when out. Has to keep things darker in her house. I know when my eyes are bothering me I can't hardly keep them open. It makes you feel tired all the time. She had to give up driving long distance due to the eye strain..some days can't even handle driving around town due to her eyes bothering her so much. Has to have her husband take her around.
With all the medical stuff tried and failed I am looking for those that might have some ideas on natural treatment. She has tried a few things but nothing has helped. So any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
