How to deal with constant blurring and burning?

Two years ago was diagnosed with lupus.

Did Lupus trigger my dry eye?

That's when my dry eye symptoms worsened. Since I was a teacher (now retired). I have had problems with burning and dry eye frequently.

I have a great eye doctor so he suggested using artificial tears which worked well- until this year.

My dry eye symptoms

I constantly have stinging eyes and sometimes blurry vision. The tears no longer work as well.

I mentioned this to my eye dr last visit- he suggested continuing the tears, using my allergy tears(lots of allergies), and trying to rest my eyes from detail work frequently.

This helps some but it is not enough. I visit him in January so I will inform him that it has gotten worse. Thanks for reading.
