  • How to reduce severe and recurrent inflammation in eyes?

    Hello everyone! I'm a young 23-year-old female with severe dry eyes. I am diagnosed with SLK (Superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis) and MDG. This all started 6 months ago in Feb. Since April, I have tried 5 IPLs, Lipiflow, restatsis, PRP drops (gave more inflammation), Plugs (increased inflammation), and multiple rounds of Lotemax and Pred Forte. However, my inflammation is still not under control. Every time I get an IPL, my eyes feel better for 2-3 weeks and then the inflammation returns - and this cycle continues even if I am using steroid drops in between. The SLK is causing a lot of rubbing and friction underneath my eyelid, which irritates and further inflames my eyes. I suspect the inflammation is a result of my severe SLK.

    Does anyone have any advice for me? How do I reduce inflammation once and for all in my eyes?
