been battling this dry eye condition for about a year now. & recently diagnosed with MGD. been on restasis for about 4 months and azasite for about 3 weeks. since starting the azasite have been marginally better with slightly more good days than bad.
however, my eyes, particularly my right eye (which has a Jones tube and a history of herpetic infections), get really red and irritated in the morning after showering. they tend to calm down toward lunch and then it's a mixed bag after that and through the end of the day. also noticed that if I wake up in the middle of the night, my right eye feels incredibly dry, but doesn't really look irritated. then they both are pretty stable when I wake, until after I shower. I drop restasis about an hour before the shower. such erratic stuff.
what do y'all say? thoughts? ideas? similar situations?
