    I stopped doing this. I thought initially there was some improvement but I think it was actually due to my allergies.

    I am in a better place now, the key has been keeping down inflammation. Doxycycline worked well but I recently stopped as it caused some stomach issues.

    Now I use a very thick eye ointment (hycosan night) throughout the day and combine it with a low inflammation lifestyle and diet. (Cold showers, keeping down my mental stress/depression, supplementing with various things for inflammation and eye health (checkout for info examine.com).

    I should soon be starting serum eye drops too which I'm hoping helps even further. I am also doing IPL but much less often (currently every 2-3 months).

    How do you think Lions Mane is helping the meibomian glands?
    i've tried many many therapies such as anti biotics, regener eyes, AIP diet, 10+ IPLs, red light therapy, cyclosporine drops. None of it has improved my mgd. I'm hesistant of trying something new based on the my personal track record with this horrible horrible disease.
    I thought probing and ipl helped you? It has helped me a little tbh. My tear film has gone from 30 to 43.

    No I don't believe I've noticed any effect on my MGD in particular. IPL (Periman Protocol) & Gland expression has been extremely helpful for me in that regard. If you think there may be a neurological component to your MGD it may be worth trying though, or you can try consuming Lions Mane supplements/tea (oriveda.com has the most reliable supplements I found).

    All joking aside, is it approx 4ml of powder for 500ml of water?

    And any update on effectiveness would be much appreciated!

    I wasn't even that rigourous, I simply used about 2 teaspoons per 300ml of water.

    I actually stopped doing it because my symptoms started getting better with IPL, I have MGD+ATD but mostly MGD is the issue. I also have allergies and have been taking anti-histamines which interferes with tear volume so I wouldn't really rely on anything I say right now.

    I am planning on starting up again to see if I can get further improvement and as the hayfever season comes to an end the picture should be clearer. I will come back an update in a month or two after getting my Ophthalmologist to do another schirmer test.

    BTW, if you want to learn more about Lions Mane, I highly recommend going to oriveda.com, there is a tonne of info on there and it seems more reliable than nearly anywhere else.

    x1carbon what clarification do you want? lelagy was pretty thorough imo and please bear in mind this isn't a science, we don't really know what we are doing here!!!

    Thanks so much for being pioneers. Excited to try this soon myself. I'm in no way an expert on Lion's Mane but this thread got posted in a Corneal Neuralgia facebook group and this guide to the mushrooms was also posted which I found very informative so I'm just going to share it here. https://www.reddit.com/r/MushroomSup...tent=post_body

    Following it led me to purchase these https://www.modernherbshop.com/Lion_...smanecombo.htm
    Excited to try this soon myself. Please continue to give feedback

    Wow thanks for this. Very informative. I had bought supplements to take and powder to prepare eye drops but never pulled the trigger as i wasn’t sure what the best way to prepare them is. Waiting for someone to clarify their recipe and results in the thread.

    I did however buying a different brand of supplements that has been verified by third parties as per the Reddit thread. Both for the potential effect on dry eyes but also for the cognitive effect

    Aegeus lelagy can you clarify a bit more how you prepare the eye drops. I just bought distilled water and Lion's mane powder but haven't gotten to give it a try yet. I have been taking Lion's mane pills but feel like the eye drops can help.

    I have both acqueous deficiency and low oil secretion but feel like this can help especially for people who have done LASIK with damaged eye nerves

    Take a look at the ingredients of that, they add alcohol in. So I wouldn't recommend it.

    Before I do something crazy can you just put that in your eyes ? The liquid extract form ?

    Sure, I'm in the UK so not sure if you can buy this elsewhere but I buy this:

    Have you tried stopping and seeing if the benefits continue? Might make sense if it is helping nerves regrow. I think putting the drops in mildly irritates my eye although I don't get any stinging sensation. So I think it might be better to stop at some point if I think my nerves have recovered.
