Conjunctivochalasis is where you have too much skin in your conjunctiva and it becomes wrinkled. It can lead to irritation of eyelids, watering and to dry eye. Feels like a foreign body sensation is in your eye and convential dry eye treatment dont work because the wrinkled skin cause tears to move away from the eye. Again did anyone have this. And did surgery work.

      It can mirror blepharitis dry eye and meibomian gland disease. What are you issues. I hope you find relief because now my mind is on overdrive. Dont know where to turn or who to go for help. Worried about corneal abrasions and the like. I dont sleep at all.

      Well, i have bad eye floaters,i have what is called a erm,it essentially a cellophane like membrane on my macula caused by something called a pvd. I have mgd/blepharitis, dry eye and get this possibly the start of cataracts. Then my eye doctor just makes light of it and tells me my eyes arent as bad as alot of peoples and to forget about the blurry vision etc. Ha,I'd like to see him try it.

      I know about the overdrive feeling. This consumes my life, ive stopped doing so many things and no one in my family understands as my eyes for the most part look normal most days.
