A little background on me: http://www.dryeyezone.com/talk/showthread.php?t=6845
-Basically I've had eyelid inflammation for about a year now, with fairly prominent blood vessels that have been there for about the entire time my blepharitis has started.
-It's been really hard and depressing to deal with dry eyes, as I'm sure most of you know, and I'd like really like to get back to having healthy clear eyes.
-I had an appointment with Dr. Latkany approximately 5 months ago. He was pretty sure that my dry eyes were caused by some sort of allergic reaction and he also said that I don't blink fully. He said, if my eyes don't get better in 6 months than I should contact him again, however he seemed pretty optimistic that my eyes would improve and I wouldn't have to come back again. He gave me a prescription of Pataday, which didn't really help.
-My eyes are not much better than they were 5 months ago. I've been taking TheraTears and fish oil pretty regularly and they haven't made much of an impact. My question is, how can I find out if it is really some sort of allergy that is causing my blepharitis? How can I isolate the allergen? If it is allergies, how long would it take for my eyes to recover, presuming that they are able to recover in the first place?
