Erik, you're right! Your wife and girls are lovely. It helps to have a supportive family when going through these things. It's so good to have another medical professional on here (I think Dr. G posts on here and maybe others). For all those who think we are looney.......nananananana. This stuff is real and it ain't pretty. Also, it's not just women who "get it." Five years ago we heard a lot of that. Well, you're an older female and what did you expect? As more men came with the same problems, it became less of an issue. Obviously dry eye does not discriminate!
Don't trust any refractive surgeon with YOUR eyes.
