    Hi. Mabel yes I do get the dry eyes too, I have mention on here a while ago that when I went to the eye clinic appointment I attend 2 times year Doctors saw hormone flatuations so I think that causes the eyes to be dry or what ever your experiencing 

    this is common in menopause most people seem to get it hugs xxx

      Hi Mabel,  I  have dry eye too, and couldn't use restasis.  I tried others but if they had any preservatives in them, I couldn't use them.  I finally found Thera Tears (available at most pharmacies), and that has no preservatives. It works well for me.

      Mabel, I think maybe I shouldn't have mentioned the name of the eyedrops I found so helpful. If  the forum board deletes from my previous post, then just go to a pharmacy and ask the pharmacist to point out eye drops for dry eye that do not have preservatives. Okay? Maybe that will help you. I know how awful dry is. I often use a warm, wet compress just above my eyes and also find some relief when my eyes are painful.

    Hi, yes, I can only wear my contacts for about 4 hours, or else they fall out of my eyes completely dry.

    Yes I get dry eyes SO BAD that many mornings I am unable to open them for awhile! Plus my eye lids get an inflammed bump thats red and VERY sore! I have been fighting this issue since peri! My eye doctor says its from my eyes getting so dry and then my hormones causes the acne and inflammation. I use eye onimate that eye doctor gave me. I will also get the heavy feeling kinda like an impending hive I take bendryal lotion with qtip and apply it on my eye lid it helps a lot. I also have even used polysproin when my eyes lids feel and look inflammed. I also never had acne when a teenager BUT since peri started years ago I fight facial acne REALLY bad and still do SOME months are worse than others.

      Hi

      I have that feeling alot for past 5months. I hate feeling this way. Can't constrate, blank, overwhelmed, on edge ,foggy, ect . Also have no motivation to do anything has lot to do with cloudy feeling in my head . I'm so done with this. As read this is only the beginning. Also feel lost in my thoughts. Wish could snap my fingers and be somewhat normal.

    Yes. Me too. I cry a lot but still have dry eyes. My lids stick to my eye ball in the morning. I use dry eye drops when I put in my lense and take it out. ( I only use 1 ) At night I use the spray infront of my eyes and when I wake as it can be very uncomfortable. When I was on HRT, no dry eyes and the lense stayed in. As sochima says when the eye is dry, the lense falls out Sometimes I feel it float about as it becomes detatched.

    Yes yes yes I have to buy the drops they are pricey but hey it helps the lubricant ones try that it will help with the pressure as well it's because when our eyes are dry it makes our nose dry and the muscle's get tight hope this was a help

    Hi yes I have also have dry eyes since peri it's really irritating eyes water constantly an feel like i gt sand in them in the morning... I asked why are they tearing if they dry it's cause our tears have nt got enough oily lubricant in them due to hormone changes..

    My eye doc gave me special drops expensive but really work to lubricate the eyes.... putting make up on is a problem.....

      My eye doc explained our tears are not oily enough so tears won't fix dry eyes.... my eyes water all day due to dry eyes it's very irritating as my makeup runs everywhere....I'm using very good drops but hav to put in 3x a day to help...

      I wear makeup too but I can't wear eye makeup because of irritation and itchiness. My eyes water too, such that by the end of the day I have no makeup from wiping the tears off my face. I just started on some new eye drops so far it's working to keep my eyes from watering.
