Dry eyes, blinks alot. Is this bad?

Dry eyes, blinks alot. Is this bad?

See an eye doctor: Dry eyes are caused by decreased production of water, oil or mucus by the tear glands. The irritated eye sends feedback to the tears glands to create more tears, and blinks more frequently in order to push more tears onto the eye surface. If you are this dry you should have an eye doctor evaluate you for the cause of your condition, as well as to start a treatment regimen that can greatly help you.

Okay to use vaseline in dry eyes?

NO: Vaseline is a skin product that theoretically should not be used in the eyes. But a number of patients have used it and stated it relieved there dry eyes. I have not seen any side effects on a couple of patients that were regularly using them. But I stopped them & put them on appropriate ophthalmic drops. There are also punctal plugs, and prescription medications other than tear drops & gels.

How to treat dry eyes from contacts?

How to treat dry eyes from contacts?

Rewetting drops: If one has dry eye from the use of contacts one should think of laser correction. If dry eye existed prior to contact lens wear then consistent use of cl rewetting drops during the daily wear would help. Assuming that the lenses are removed and stored every night it would also be helpful to use lubricants at night such as gel drops which are thicker than normal rewetting or regular dry eye drops.

Is there permanent cure for dry eyes?

Is there permanent cure for dry eyes?

None so far: There are many palliative approaches which can make eye dryness tolerable and sometimes even eliminate treatment except in special circumstances. But eye dryness is due to insufficient baseline tear flow related to loss of tear production cells and these so far cannot be replaced naturally. A stem cell approach might be helpful here in the future.
