I'm so sorry that you are having increased blurred vision. I am wondering if you are still in the care of a hospital or ophthalmology doctor that you like who can treat you and monitor this? Can you consult a specialist again about the worsening to find out what's happening? Could be another cause eg retinal or eye pressure? I think this has to be done.
www.med-support.org.uk Very good professional optometrist website listing eyedrops for your research
You were saying that Genteal was making you more uncomfortable, maybe because of allergy to the base? Did that improve?
My daughter has been using Celluvisc Minims at least 6xday and she felt they coated the eye surface well, especially in airconditioning. She doesn't need gel at night - although I think this is your question? - so we concentrate on keeping the eye surface moist during the day, also with wraparounds. She has MGD causing surface damage, rather than laser damage, although she is aqueous deficient.
She is also now using drops with 0.1% hyaluronic acid (all the main manufacturers have them - Bausch & Lomb, Allergan etc) and she feels better. To me, she has a better tear film on these. These drops are also used for post-surgery healing so I am hoping they will help the eye surface, although these are more bland formulations for regular use. I am slightly worried that there is absorption on HLA drops into the eye surface, so we also use the Celluvisc when the eyes are very dry, eg in a/c (spaced by at least 30 minutes from HLA drops) which I understand does not absorb.
About natural therapy, we are being careful with diet - more omega 3 oils, less fats and sugars - and using gentle warm compress, a warm shower is enough, and this has helped the meibom.
Do you have punctal plugs?
Hope this is useful. Warm greetings.
