i had severed dry eyes for years now, use every oitment on the market, tried retasis,
never worked, have gone to several eye specialist, no one may help, i am miserable
Have you tried using artifical tears? I guess maybe it can be helpful.
I use lubricating eye drops or artificial tears for my dry eyes. When my lower eye lids become red and inflamed from wiping the stringy goo out of my eyes, my eye Dr says to use a small drop of tearless baby shampoo in the eye to wash away bacteria that may have accumulated in my eye. It works! I don't look like I have pink eye anymore when I wake up in the morning and there's a lot less goo seeping from my eye. My right eye is the worst.
Why do I have crusty stuff on my eyelashes and my eyes itch and burn. Sometimes I wake up my eyes are stuck together!
It's probably blepharitis. See an ophthalmologist.
