Ariel, I have Sjogrens and besides the dry eyes, also have dry mouth, throat etc. Sometimes I am so dry I cannot swallow without taking a drink.
We are told by drs to suck on sugarless lemon drops to stimulate saliva glands. It does pretty well, although it only lasts as long as the candy. I chew sugarless gum almost all the time I'm awake to keep my throat moist. I can't say it has helped my eyes, but lots of times people say something helps both their eyes and saliva.
I just reread Indrep's post and I think it nuked my post. Indrep would know better than I. Lucy
Don't trust any refractive surgeon with YOUR eyes.
