Additional Eye Conditions

In addition to chronic dry eye, what other eye conditions are you experiencing (or have experienced in the past)?

  1. I have had macular degeneration for approximately 6 years now. Sharon Moore, chronic dry team member.

    1. Yes it's definitely unfortunately common comorbidity of chronic dry eye. Thanks for sharing! For those interested, here is a list of other common comorbidities associated with chronic dry eye ( - Reggie, Team Member

  2. I have Blethoraspams! Anyone else have those? I get Botox shots around my eyes that help some.

    1. I also have the Blethoraspams. Right now I am trying to decide whether to get the shots again. The fact that it only lasts three months and costs me $300 for the Botox and $150 for the five minutes it takes for the injections, I don't have the money to pay for that. My insurance only pay a tiny portion of the doctor fee. The shots do help some but I sure wish it would last longer. I also have chronic dry eyes and Parkinsons disease which makes it a bit more challenging. Good luck to you. Elaine

  3. Hi Elaine,
    I do agree that botox does help me some also! Too bad insurance doesn't pay much, it can be so expensive. Thank you for sharing.
