    Well it's too early to say. It seems like I have good and bad days. Sometimes my eyes feel fairly normal and other times they feel like sandpaper. What I'm hoping for is my eyes to feel normal for several days in a row.

    Right now my eyes feel pretty good but the redness and veins remain. I'm waiting for the Luminesse eye drops to be released and I'm gonna start taking Vitamin A and Vitamin B2 to see if it helps with the redness and veins. I really wish the redness and veins would go away and at this point I'm willing to try almost anything besides surgery, which is too dangerous and will most likely be banned in the US.

      I made an appointment with a dry eye specialist. We'll see how it goes.

        Glad to hear it.

        I hope you can see the bigger picture here - that the overall health of your eye is far more important than how it looks. Try not to be disappointed if the doctor says (s)he can't do anything about the redness.

          I understand that but my eyes are still feeling like sandpaper sometimes and even if the health of my eye is good that doesn't mean I want to have eyes that are always red/bloodshot with veins everywhere for the next 60 years.

          Do you have red/bloodshot eyes with veins or just sandpaper feeling eyes?

            My eyes used to be super gritty. The grittiness was caused by a condition called corneal neuropathy - basically the nerves in your eye are damaged and send false signals to the brain. Luckily, I've been using serum tears for the past 15 months or so, and I'm much better now.

            Serum tears are eye drops made from your own blood. They contain regenerative factors that heal your nerves. But they are somewhat pricey (on the order of $1000/year) and need to be kept refrigerated at all times. Their lifespan in the fridge is much like milk, actually - I've been told to keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months and the fridge for up to a week.

            I don't have extremely red eyes, but I would say the veins in my eyes are more noticeable than other people. In all honesty, I've had dry eyes for long enough (4+ years) that all I really care about is how my eyes feel, not how they look.
