My Life Nemesis
Last updated: June 2023
I was diagnosed with dry eye syndrome a couple of years ago.
How I manage chronic dry eye
I use prescription eye drops, over-the-counter eye drops, plus a self-heating steam eye mask nightly (sometimes two a night as they are single-use masks).
Also, the red eyes where people will tell me my eyes are very red.
I no longer can wear my contacts as my ophthalmologist states it would be too painful.
Such is the daily life of a “dry eye” patient.
Has having dry eye helped you better advocate for yourself?
