Anyone using Restasis for dry eye syndrome?
I have punctum plugs in my lower eyelids which have helped tremendously, after a horrible winter last year. My eyes were constantly irrited, sore, itchy, red. I also wear gas perm monovision contac lenses, have worn contacs for about 35 years. Doc says that that is not a problem.
Now that the humid summer is gone, the dry atmosphere is not helping. I'm still putting Thera-tears (and others) in my eyes 6-7 times a day, and the more gel-like, before bed.
I'm considering getting punctums for my upper lids as well. Anyone have them both?
But back to the posted question.... does anyone with my-sounding-condition get any relief from Restatis? I heard that if you already have plugs, then it won't help, which is disappointing...was just curious if there's anyone with experience.
