I'm 33 and healthy, but have had problems with my eyes for about 4 years now. I have dry eye, issues with mgd, and am under the care of an optho who has improved my tear osmolarity through the use of the right eye drops and azasite, but I'm tired of still having some bad days and nights with my eyes. I hate to complain because I know it can be worse (and it has been before), but I'm tired of this and worried about dealing with it for the rest of my life. I was on birth control for over a decade and have recently read that it can cause dry eye issues. I'm wondering, since I never had these problems on birth control, whether going back on it might regulate something in my body that will make my eyes better. I asked my doc about this, but he gave a vague response and didn't seem to think investigating the cause of my eye problems made sense since I don't have other symptoms besides eye problems. Any thoughts?
