  • Sensitive eye victims - Refresh Plus pitfalls alert

    Consider this to be a post just for the record (as an ongoing record of my eyedrop experiences)

    Pitfalls to avoid for those with my type of sensitive eyes:
    (i.e. years of over exposure to UV of horrendous Samsung LCD. By now I have both spheroidal degeneration, eyelid-burn. and Probable MGD. NOT blepharitis or rosacea, which have become runaway misdiagnoses IMO, as I detailed many times previously on DEZ.

    (1) Walgreens' WEIL brand supposedly mimicking Refresh Plus is a fallacy. It caused my lid heavyness and spasms, unlike Refresh Plus.

    (2) Refresh Optive ( touted for "sensitives" is a fallacy - not the whole truth. My eyes are very sensitive from spheroidal degeneration, and it caused my lids heavyness and my eyes to burn, unlike Refresh Plus.

    As for other drops:

    What were OK for me were:
    Systane Ultra preservative free, and also Genteal Severe Gel (purple+red tube), and also Refresh Plus.
    I suspect that FreshKote would prove to be the best, if only not so expensive.

    What were negative for me were:
    Hycosan, Theratears, Soothe, etc. etc.
    These all would cause heavyness and/or irritation or spasms, followed by dry feeling
