Hi, I went in and got my vision checked at the Optometrist today, he is a very nice man, the gal who took me back for the peripheral vision test and photo, was shocked when I told her how ofter I used drops in my eyes. Dr. was surprised too, but said that my eyes looked really good, and that keeping up on the drops must be a big part of it, I asked him if he ever saw anyone who did not produce tears start back up, he did say that he has seen a lot of pt. with DES, and his experience is that its continuous, that finding a manageable routine is the thing that gets them through, we talked a bit about the likelihood of Sjogren's, which I tested neg for and he asked me if I had any of the other symptoms, such as dry mouth, or arthritis, I don't, in his opinion I don't have it. but he said that once you have come this far, its unlikely that it will get better, completely. Any thoughts on this? Oh he did ask me if I was taking the fish oil, I said yes, and Flax, primrose, along with several other supplements. I guess I wasn't too upset because my eyes are doing pretty good right now.
