I too feel better (dry eye symptoms) the following day after drinking alcohol. No idea why this is, but it is most certainly the case.
I know this makes little medical sense but I actually find my eyes can sometimes be a little better the morning after a few pints?
Could it be that the headache, stomach, all over bad-feeling (hangover to me) just makes the eyes seem not so bad?
Sorry, fellas, I just had to put that in. Mere joke. I'm past those days.
Don't trust any refractive surgeon with YOUR eyes.
