    I think any doctor can prescribe it, really.

        Thank you tommyboy . I have an appointment with an opthalmologist at Penn who specializes in dry eyes but it's in March next year . Hoping I can get a script for setting drops sooner. I started getting these odd pains I didn't have before that started this week. A dull ache that comes and goes in both eyes and this dull pinching pain that feels like a needle price that comes randomly. Doesn't last though. And since the beginning I've been having aches/pressure in my eyebrows and around the orbit that I would just massage. Didn't think anything of it before but noticed it kept happening. I started xiidra this week and wonder if it is what is causing the odd dull pains I've been experien

        Either way I'm hoping that the doc at Penn can help. I really hoped to see someone sooner. The dry eyes has really been kicking my butt. Eyes get red and the same blood vessels pop up everyday. Before it would calm down with some cold water, now it doesn't seem to budge. And I'm still trying to find longer lasting relief drops. I feel like relief with the drops I do now is so short lived. Trying to keep strong in this dark moment in my life.

        I also am considering going to see Dr. Hamrah if need be. Another optometrist told me I was producing tears and to be happy with my outcome. That wasn't such a pleasant visit so I won't even go into that story. I know it's been years but would you happen to have contact info for Dr. Hamrah? Thanks in advance.

          Hi nwong
          If your pain is short/sharp/sudden, often occurs in the middle of the night or when wake up most likey related to erosion?
          What I have read is, it is a result of untreated dry eye (MGD?).

            Oh my God that sounds bad. I am going to see a new optometrist January 2 so hopefully they can tell me what is going on when they do my eye exam. The thought of waiting till March to see the doc at Penn with the pains I've been having is frustrating. With all the other things going on with my eyes, I need prescription glasses just for my right eye. Thanks for your response MGD1701 . Have a Merry Christmas!

              I am not sure nwong if any Dr would prescribe it, I am sure they could if they were comfortable with writing a prescription for something that they probably know nothing about. For what it is worth mine are prescribed by eye specialists.
