No, olive oil will not help with lash growth, but a prescription of Latisse will, ask your eye care professional.

I suggest creating a hot compress from a washcloth in the bathroom sink and holding the compress on both eyes until the rag is cool 3 times a day for no longer than 1 minute. In addition oral supplement of 1-2 fish oil tabs per day will help. there are no otc remedies that are effective.

Thanks for your kind advice . I will surely visit an ophthalmologist . But I also needed to know if shallow anterior chamber can be caused by Sjögren's syndrome.
