  • Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I visited this forum about 4 months ago in a desperate attempt to get a handle on my dry eye problem. I read a thread about preservatives in allergy drops being harmful to the cornea and worsening/causing dry eye. Being a 15-year daily user of Cromolyn and then Patanol for bad allergies(constant redness, forign body sensation), I decided to try stopping the allergy drops.

    My God- within a week, I was feeling better. I didn't need my arsenal of drops and gel anymore, even in the very dry winter months and indoor forced heat that usually made me miserable.

    4 months and still symptom-free, except for long days out in the wind and cold or airplanes. I use Refresh or Systane twice a day,and that does the trick.I still need gel throughout a plane trip.

    I don't really understand why my Ophthalmologists never mentioned this(and I worked for them!), but I know on exam, my corneas always looked ok.

    Thank you all so much, and I wish you all solutions to your dry eyes!
