I do not know any other community for dry eye then this one so lets clear up some really problematic problems abotu dry eyes. A quick overviw of a few BIG problems can be found in this thread.
1. Do dry eyes cause fatigue? I would say yes but why ophtas and doctors dont agree?
2. Do doctors and ophtas know everything? Beside the basics, i dont think think the symptoms are well known.
3. Do lights outside and car lighting cause problems (esp at night)? A big yes.
4. How about Tv, computers, cell phones? THey all dry our eyes when medium to long exposure.
5. Is it curable? some have healed environement and long computer usage induced dry eyes .
6. Whats the biggest secret and controversy behind dry eyes? I would say $$$. Eye drops do not help much and the pharmaco industry is controversial as well. I would say they did try to give us solutions such as Restasis but in this era of time and technology, its disapointing dont you think?
6. Is it ruining most aspects of our lives? A big yes.
7. Should we give up? NO.
