Dry Eyes

February 2008

 

My eyes were now glued shut in the morning. They itched and burned and felt gravelly, throughout the day. They seeped infection for days at a time.

 

I saw opthalmologist, Dr. C. He said I did not have an infection. He said I had a dry eye condition, resulting from the drying up of my mucosa, post-surgery. The exudate, he said, was not infection, but mucous. The eyes were attempting to lubricate themselves. I would now have to use artificial tears. Another physical condition caused by the unnecessary surgery—another product I needed to buy.

 

I soon discovered that none of the commercial products worked very well. The best of them was a homeopathic product called Similasan Dry Eye Relief. But my dryness was not your run-of-the-mill dryness. I began researching natural remedies on the Internet. I found and ordered the Ayurvedic product, Triphala . Eye washes prepared from the tablets provided the best relief. Eventually, I would make eye washes with the herbs Eyebright, Chervil and Fennel, which also help to alleviate inflammatory swelling under the eyes. And I discovered Natural Opthalmics Homeopathic Women’s Dry Eye drops.

  3. Asking questions are in fact nice thing if you are not understanding something entirely,
    except this post provides fastidious understanding yet.

  4. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to
    start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. After taking bath you should apply a skin lotion which contains essential oils.

    It can be due to genetic conditions, hormonal changes,
    changing climatic conditions and lots more. A face moisturizer,
    both for daytime and nighttime, containing salicylic acid also gives the
    advantage of exfoliation on the skin and cleanses the pores
    within, and can benefit people who suffer
    from acne most of the time.
