    Besides there is no money in the cure, only in the treatment.
    Well, if they ever find a true cure for dry eye, they'll just have to charge a ton of money for it so they will still make a worthwhile profit to pay for all of their research!

    Anyhow, figured I'd post an update on my honey experiment.

    My MG's are clearly improved... they definitely look better than they did when i started this whole honey experiment...

    As for my dry eye symptoms, my eyes continue to feel much more moist than they did before honey... so strange... I wouldn't have expected that... wonder if my MG's are starting to secrete oils more normally and therefore my tears are lasting longer? It's a mystery, I guess... (however, if my 20x magnifying mirror arrives as planned, maybe THEN I will gain some insight into what the heck my MG's are secreting lol)

    All I can say is that THIS IS SO COOL! (a little wacky maybe... but COOL!)

    Hmmm... I just noticed that there haven't been much in the way of negative posts about trying honey lately... is that because people are being more cautious about experimenting with it, and therefore no-one else has had a bad experience with it lately? or is it just that those with bad experiences just haven't wanted to spoil the party?? I hope that people will continue to post even about negative experiences... it would be good to know what went wrong... what kinds of dry eye problems are seeming to respond to the honey vs. not etc.

      whoot whoot!

      Yea Saag, Im so glad its working for you....and yes the theory with the oil mixing with your tears does make you feel like you have more water....at least it did for me...

      Im happy its helping...and as you know some people cant handle the stinging in the eye...all least I couldnt either...so each has to struggle to find their own way.

      Thanks for keeping us informed of your progress!

        I had read most of this thread, and it gives me some hope of treatment/cure. I shall try this. I was wondering, I'm not sure if it had been asked before, so sorry in advance, but can the honey act sort of like temporary punctal plugs? What I mean is if I dab a small bit of it into my puncta, will that be comparable to plugs?

          I think it would sting badly, your eyes would water like mad, the honey would dissolve in all those tears, and no punctal plugging would occur

          Wouldn't want to see you suffer major irritation from it...

                      OMG!! This actually works!! How cool is that..
                      I put some on my lids 3-4 times a day and night and my eyes feel waay better than ever before, I think my TBUT has gone up from 3 to 10. It surtenly feels like that.. And since my eyes are more moist, the redness has improved!
                      Before I tried this, my eyes would be FULL of crust in the morning, but now -nothing

                      And a bonus of using this: I smell like sweet honey all day

                        For those who apply it on the eyelids which is what I intend to, do you somehow dilute the honey a bit with water or just spread a tiny little layer of the honey on them? I don't intend to put it in my eyes but it's mostly my eyelids that are irritated anyway.

                        Anyhow, my order has just passed.

                        The good aspect to this is that, if it doesn't work, I can always eat the rest.

                          Hi Redandsensitive, that is awesome. Manuka Honey comes with different UMF(Unique Manuka Factor).

                          - What UMF is your honey that you are using? For example the honey will state +10, +20 etc on the label.
                          - What brand
                          - and from what website?

                          Thanks

                          Hi Regina, can you also please let us know what product and UMF you are using? Thanks

                            Hi plat

                            you know...the first time...i used my 5 year old table honey...then the next week i used my local bee honey....then everybody scared me about infection and i ordered Manuka honey...its still table honey becasuse it says on the label...great on bisquits..haha

                            I think if your putting it on the eye lid margins it can be anykind. But if i was making eye drops it might be a better idea to use manuka....but I think all honey works...and if you are boiling it with distilled water...it would be safe. Hi Plat!

                                What I did was spread a small dab of honey on my eyelid, and when wet my finger and even it out, by doing so, diluting the honey as well. It seems to work as when it dries out, my eyelids are annoyingly sticky :P

                                I wouldn't recommend putting honey in your eye though unless you've got very diluted drops. And even then.
