Hello! I've been reading here for quite a while but just recently registered.

I've had increasingly dry eyes for the last 10-12 years. I have year-round allergies (including eye allergies), rosacea, and I wear soft contact lenses.

After a recent and very enlightening discussion with my ophthalmologist, I realized there were more options available to treat dry eye than I thought and I'm now trying to be more proactive. Some things I'm trying: Some of the newer lubricating eye drops, gentle eyelid scrubs, omega 3 (flax & fish oil) supplements.

Thanks for this wonderful resource, it's been so helpful.
