    mine are the same the drops clear them but just for a little bit.  i use relastis and at night i use a gel .  i still have a lot of problems tho.  i will tell you this some of it could be your medication you are on/  do some research and see if any of them cause dry eyes or dry mouth.  i have done the plugs route but did not have luck.  keep trying different drops some are a little thicker than others those might help you.  wish i could tell you more but i am still fighting it.  my eyes are constantly wet and that is dry eyes also.

      ok to make my story short, i have dry eyes but my eyes run constantly.  The eye drs and put plugs in my eyes which helps with the real tears.  The problem with me the plugs came out they go in the corner of your eye lid and do come out eventually.  they do it in the office.  Mine did not work so i had recontruction on my tear ducts and that did not work on me either.  i have been to six doctors.  they all have told me i have the worst case they have ever seen.  Now i have been on Detrol La for like 15 years for my bladder.  that causes dry eye and dry mouth.  My urologist just changed my medicine so i am praying that helps.

    Restasis is supposed to be the eye drop that cures dry eyes in many people. Didn't work for me, though.

    Drops that have worked for me... Lacrigel, Vitapos, Hylo-tears, Optive.. Lacrilube is another but dinlt work for me. You have to keep trying.

    Good luck!
