mash2011 started a topic My experience with debilitating dry eye post LASIK (and how it is six years later)
My experience with debilitating dry eye post LASIK (and how it is six years later)About six years ago, I had LASIK for the first time. I had really bad vision (about -5.00) and contact lenses were too uncomfortable to wear. It's not that I refused to wear glasses... it's that I felt utterly useless when waking up, going swimming, looking for my glasses, etc. I didn't want to be so...
Proper eye drop instillationHi everyone,
I am currently on a four drop regimen of restasis, lotemax gel, patanol, and artificial tears. I am taking the lotemax and patanol because of very bad ocular allergies that has manifested into papillary conjunctivitis (I have seen an optometrist about this). I have been on...

DRY EYE VETERNS!!! Advice pleaseI had lasik 6 years ago - zero issues. I had a PRK top up 9 months ago - lots of issues!
I have read older stories by Prattstar, Jovver, Hangus etc and I see that they went through a really terrible time. And they seem to be much much better now. They seemed to also have a lot worse of...
Hi, there, new posterHi, I'm new to this site.
I have had chronic dry eye syndrome for 30 years and have a diagnosis of Sjogren. A new eye doctor has just suggested Restasis but looking at their internet site, it says there was no new tear production with plugs or cauterization. I have one eye with plugs and one...
New member, dryness started 3 months after LasikI got Lasik in in early February 2015. It was part of my life plan to have it done before my 30ís (Iím 29) so to better enjoy my following projects such a special effects make-up and travelling. In the country I live, Lasik is mandatory to everyone wanting to get in the police force, and here was my...
GreetingsGreetings, my name is Diane & I have been taking Restatsis since Jan 2015. At first it felt wonderful & the symptoms were alleviated but now some have returned. Burning @ times, blurry vision, extreme sensitivity to light - can't leave the house unless I wear a hat & sunglasses, can't read...
Plugs for severe DESI've plugged my lowers today. The caps are not bothering me much, maybe because I've used contacts for many years at a time when they were not as advanced as they are today. Hope the plugs will help me with my severe DES. I will also start with Restasis. Will be posting how things go from here.
Ciclosporin in the UK - update..and Restasis costI'm 8 months in to the severe dry eye experience and was set to try ciclosporin (also spelled cyclosporine/cyclosporin) aka the nearest thing the UK has to Restasis. I understand that up until very recently this drug was available on "special" prescription, from one place on in the UK only,...
My experience with MGD (part 2)Hi everyone.
I started a thread about my experience with probing and lipiflow a while back. But it quickly became quite chaotic so I thought I'd start a new one. Also, I feel like my understanding of MGD has progressed a lot and I don't necessarily back all of the statements I made in the previous...

Hello! MGD in remission 6 months thanks to Tacrolimus!Hi all! Long time lurker, first time poster. 31/female. This could go in Triumphs for sure but since I'm new I'm posting it here to give you a bit of background. I'll try to keep it short.

Restasis- 2 boxes availableHi everyone, I have 2 boxes of Restasis (0.05%) that I won't be using because these days I'm using a higher concentration of cyclosporine that's specially compounded by a pharmacy. If you are interested, I can mail them to you. Please message me.
Each box contains 30 individual vials...
A restasis break?It's been a long time since I was here, as my eyes have improved a lot in the past 1,5 years (since starting on restasis). I'm considering taking a restasis break for a few months, to see how my eyes will do without. I'm a little bit scared that my eyes will get worse and am not looking forward to fall...Last edited by Meike; 13-Nov-2013, 07:19.
Schrimer scores worse after treatments...?After 10 months of restasis, 6 months of doxy, 8 months of warm compresses + expression 3x a day for 15-20 min, 8 months of being quadra-plugged, and 3 months of serum my eyes still feel like crap.
What's most strange is after all this treatments my schrimer scores are worse than before...
Cauterize top or bottom; it's decision timeOkay, so here's an update on my eye. I'm the idiot who had her right punctas cut open by a surgeon last year which gave me Instant Dry Eye on one side. I've tried Restasis twice now. First time stopped because lower lid swelled extremely and inside was blood-red. Waited several months then tried...
