How safe is ortho k treatment for nearsighted eyes?

Mostly: Ortho k is a systemic of molding mildly myopic eyes to correct the vision by wearing a series of too flat hard lenses which push the center of the eye inwards. It is a tradeoff since to maintain any improvement, you have to wear a "keeper" lens at night. It was developed as a way to keep non-professionals like optometrists in the vision correction game. It reverses when you stop the lenses. ...Read more

What's a good remedy for dryness in eyes or tear glands?

Lots of options: There is no one best option. What you want to use is an artificial tear drop or, if the condition is more severe, gel. The types with "get the red out" medicine i advise against. In mild dry eye, i usually recommend a 3 times a day schedule, regardless of symptoms. If that isn't sufficient, you can increase it. Persistent symptoms despite frequent use should prompt a visit to an ophthalmologist. ...Read more
