I have been suffering from keratitis for several months now. It is an offshoot of rheumatoid arthritis and means my eyes are super dry all the time. It feels like being in non-stop onion-peeling mode combined with a sense that ash has been thrown in my eyes.
I constant need to put in special drops and gels even to begin to feel even a little comfortable.
I've also been taking a very pricey form of eyedrop called Restasis twice a day, which is supposed to heal the condition albeit slowly. And over four months, at a creeping pace, it was getting more manageable.
But now I've suddenly had a relapse. All the disturbance and misery of barely being able to keep my eyes open for long has suddenly returned.
I'm aware my next step would be to have punctual plugs put into the eyes' drainage ducts, but I am very resitant to having this procedure.
I would so much welcome advice or feedback from anyone who knows this conditon and has suggestions.
