    Area Above Cornea is Uneven

    So the area above my Cornea is uneven. Like if I were to shine a light at it from an angle, you can see horizontal lines and it kinda looks wrinkled.

    I'm thinking this might be SLK (Superior Limbic Keratoconjunctivitis) or some form of CCH (Conjunctivochalasis).

    The area above...

    So essentially, one night I just rubbed my eyes and then I instantly...

    Xiidra questions

    17yr old daughter just started Xiidra. Nervous because she doesn't do well with prescription anything & worried about safety since it is still so new. It cant harm meibomian glands or goblet cells, since it's not helping them the way Restasis does?Why does it burn so much and make vision blurry....

    4 Plugs Overflow

    It is now 7 days since I have 4 full plugs. The first 3 hours were great and then the overflow started. The skin around my eyes is so painful. I also have very bad morning dryness.

    Should I give it more time or take out my plugs?
    Had anybody tried flow control plug?...
