Oh yes, YES Y E S.
Drives be crazy.
I have had this for a few years now and have prescription drops as well as glaucoma drops - first they said it was old age!
Someone told me the other day while I was volunteering in my shop, that it is hay fever.
Who knows but I cannot get rid of it - it is a very annoying condition to have.
YES! I have just sat at the computer after putting some Systane in my eyes! They are positively crunchy dry. Like Finy, I have to put glaucoma drops in my eyes and they make the eyes feel stiff and dry (my brother has the same drops and the same problem) so during the day I put lubricating drops in. Ah, bliss.
Perhaps the high sugar reading doesnt help glaucoma....I went to the eye dr last time the day after my "diet" day and pressure had dropped dramatically.
After I started the 5/2 diet, my pressures dropped from 19 to 9, and the Dr would not believe it was from food but I have proved now that when I eat little, pressure goes down in my eyes!!
My Lumigan is now $5.50 with health care card, thank heaven. it used to be $35. The specialist got really mad when the chemist didn't read the script properly and gave me the ones with preservative. Now he puts NP in big letters and that means the individual phials. My eyes have no pupils any more - they are always dilated. I hate it.
I pay for the Systane Ultra simply because it seems to work best for me. (so far)
I have seen ads for these drops ever since they came on the market, and I always wondered if they actually worked. Thanks so much Jonaj, for your honest and glowing report about their effectiveness! Word of mouth is ALWAYS the best recommendation for anything at all!!
When I was at uni I hit a point where I couldn't study any more because my eyes were too sore and everything got blurry. Had to just rest for a while. Probably had learned everything I was likely to cram in by that point anyway. Also got red eyes around Christmas time as a kid when my cousins and I spent all day in the pool in the chlorine, but that fixes itself too.
When I was a child and throughout my teens, I suffered shockingly due to my allergies/It is the most awful sensation, as we use our eyes ALL the time apart from when we sleep.I have not experienced any issues with this sort of thing since coming to live in Nth Qld from Victoria many long years ago!! I do believe that all eye problems need to be checked sooner rather than later, as the underlying problems could be rather serious.
Very much so. It's worse when I'm in air conditioning as my eyes hurt and I feel so tired I just want to close them. I do have an auto immune deficiency which causes this so I'd suggest if you have a real problem with your eyes you consult your doctor and request a referral to a specialist.
