    And how are you now? Did you managed to cure your eyes by only drinking/eating fish oil caps? Do you think that stopping using a computer for a few weeks may be a way to resolve our problem?

      I doubt that fish oil is going to be the magic cure. For sure it is a good idea but most of us on this forum are already doing that as part of our regime but sadly it is more complicated than that.

        Maybe you can hop in the shower and turn the water pressure up and the heat and put the showerhead directly to your eyelids for 5 minutes each eye do this for 2 weeks and if it works that means your meibomian glands were blocked

          Hi pythonidler
          Do you know Dr Periman also suffers dry eye?
          Maybe that is why she is so passionate to share her knowledge with doctors/patients.
          I have read/watched some of her articles/viedos and really adore her.

          As far as I know she never stops hunting for technologies (for example ILP) to help her MGD patients.
          The IPL is now fully operational with encouraging results! Check it out!

            No, I didn't know that. I thought about going to her, but my current IPL doctor is good, for a fraction of the price.

              i wear tinted moister chamber glasses when i use the computer (there are tinted a warm orange) i also use a program i think called flux? (someone correct me if that is the wrong name) which tints the screen better for the eyes to focus on.

                  Yeah, me too. I got some moisture chamber goggles from SportRx, and they have an anti-reflective coating that is supposed to block against blue light.

                    Before I began using Xiidra, computers were a nightmare. My eyes would burn and turn red after just a short time. Xiidra has been a miracle drug for me. I am telling everyone to at least try these drops and give them a few months to work. I don't have dry eye issues anymore. I had been suffering with DES for about 20 years.

                      Hi,

                      First of all, sorry to hear about your condition.

                      Second, computer screens can and do cause dry eyes, because people tend to blink less frequent while looking at the screen.

                      So, to keep the eyes moist, blinking enough and using eyedrops / lubricants can help.

                      An application that helps with blinking enough can be found here:

                      Hope it helps and get well soon,

                      Peter

                        Computer screens and decreased blink rate were definitely a big factor for me in getting this problem. I also think i had Rosacea/Ocular Rosacea which went undiagnosed for a long time which has not helped. From speaking to my opthamologist he said that he is seeing more and more young people in his clinic with this problem and the root cause is screen use and not blinking properly. I think people are in general not really aware of the damage that looking at screens can do to your eyes - it pains me when I see young childern staring at phones and ipads!

                          I also suffer from dry eyes from spending too many hours on the computer. I have suffered for at least 5 years now with dry eyes and enlarged blood vessels in the sclera which badly affected my self esteem . I heard a vitamin A deficiency is a cause for dryness and that staring into artificial light depreciates the vitamin A in your body much quicker. So now I'm eating one 57 gram bag of organic kale chips every day. Kale is loaded with vitamin A. I'm also done with using eye drops to "hide" the symptoms. So this is my 10th day now and Ive noticed some improvement. My eyes aren't feeling super dry as they used to and my eyes also do not appear to be inflamed even though the blood vessels are still there. I feel like i got my life back just a little bit that i'm not afraid to make eye contact from a normal distance and I also don't find myself laying in bed for hours like a paralyzed person staring at the wall waiting for the effects of dry eye to wear off. Plus I installed f.lux on my computer which is a program that negates the blue light that is harmful for your eyes. I know how easy it is to vanish from this site after your problems are better, and I wish more people would take a moment to share what's working for them. so i came back to offer this advice. Good luck.

                          P.S please note it's still important to rest your eyes for as long as possible and getting sleep earlier.

                            I compiled a list of tips / software / apps from the forum / dry eye groups and put it up on Evernote if interested.
