I am now ten weeks post lasik and things have "changed". By change I mean drops really aren't effective anymore. I get relief maybe for about three minutes then my eye actually feel drier. At work, where the ac continually runs non stop, I can make it about three hours before my eyes begin to be irritated. At six hours my eyes are in hell. At this point I have to put drops, but again the drop only work for a couple of minutes and my eyes feels worse. As a result, I have to put drops in every 10-15minutes. I wore my onion goggles once to work and I will not do it again. I am a high school teacher. Here is the other "change",on the weekends at home or only in stores for may be a hour my eyes feel ok. They are still dry but not the burning and stinging I get from work. I do where my goggles more often at home but not all the time and I use no drops at home. I know my work environment is strongly affecting my tear composition. I feel if I could just produce more tears my work environment would be more bearable. I see tears in my eyes in morning and at home on weekends and this is when my eyes feel almost normal most of the time. I was just wondering I anyone had any experience with either that they would like to share. I have lower plugs which do not bother me and I think have helped retaining moisture on my eye. Any help would be appreciated.
No announcement yet.
Upper plugs or Restasis ???? or both????
