    Have you tried taking a high dose of fish oil? Some times it takes 2-3 months before you get the benefits for these but they make a great deal of difference to many dry eye suffers.

    No eye drops really help me against this extreme sicca syndrome,
    I must take hyaluronic acid 0,3% all 15 minutes, about the whole day distributed I have to do certainly 60 times pure drop.

    I have despaired very much,

    Flaxseed oil in the eye lids brings for 1 hour relief, but i can't recognize any longer cure.

    I have this mega sicca syndrome since 3 Months and it becomes simply not better.

    I have already tried the following to cure the sicca syndrome but no effect:

    - Tears Again Sensitive (4 Weeks)
    - Anthocyane (3 Weeks)
    - High Dosage Vitamin C (~ 5g about 3 Weeks)
    - Flaxseed Oil oral and on the eye lids
    - omega 7 (sallow thorn oil) 3 Weeks
    - several standard eye drops (carbomer 2mg etc.)
