I have a topic that I would like to introduce, which I have not read anything about on these threads. As background information I am not sure that I have ever really received an accurate diagnosis to explain what is causing my symptoms. I have been told many things including blepharitis, ocular rosacea, eczema, and possibly allergies. I am using warm compresses twice daily and over-the-counter drops as needed to treat the symptoms.
What baffles me is that the constant discomfort and irritation in my eyes seems to worsen when I wear my eyeglasses. I had been wearing soft contact lenses for years but due to the dryness and irritation was forced to switch to glass, having a fairly high prescription (5.5 in left and 6.0 in right). So I am at a point now where I cannot where contacts, and I cannot wear glasses without causing more discomfort, and without wearing either I am terribly near sighted and can hardly function to perform any type of day-to-day activities.
I am curious if anyone else has had this experience? Basically the glasses seem to cause my eyes to strain to see through the discomfort and dryness, and the straining therefore makes the discomfort worse. I am able to function in my own house, because I am so familiar with the setting, but going outside is a real chore because I am nearly blind.
Anyone experience this type of phenomenon?
