    Oil

    Hi!

    I have MGD, and I'm just wondering why I can't find eyedrops with oil in them. Since my tears are evaporating to quickly, why can't you just make tears with oil in them?

    Thanx

    Refresh Endura (now called Refresh Dry Eye Therapy) & Bausch and Lomb's Soothe contain lipids. Mineral oil in Soothe and glycerin in Dry Eye Therapy.
    I don't know about their availability in Norway, but at least this will give you a starting point.

    Refresh Endura contains castor oil (and preservative free) but I think it's been discontinued. Bausg & Lomb Soothe drops contain oil, and so does the prescription drop Restasis. Many of the pf ointments like Refresh PM also contain oil but are not good for daytime use. Hth!

    I have been thinking about switching to an oil based eye drop. I have MGD also. I have looked at Walmart, Walgreens, the pharmacy at the hospital where I work, and cannot find one. The 2 that I have learned has oil and have been looking for are Refresh Endura (although I think the name has changed to Refresh PF) and Soothe.

    They did have them for awhile - they were called "Dry Eye Therapy" preservative free vials, and they had castor oil in them. They quit making them, but another poster on here said he/she found some again. I still have yet to find them.

    Soothe XP is mineral oil. I've tried it 2-3 times in the last 24 hours and it helped a couple times, that's not a bad percentage with my OTC drop experience.
    I think the times it worked best was when my right eye still felt dry after using Systane Ultra PF.
    There is probably more people with negative experience with it on this board them positive but every body is different.
