I would value some input from others who have suffered dry eyes.
From the beginning of this year until now my eyes have got progressively worse. Dry, burning, sore and slightly bloodshot, but the worst thing is the disruption to my vision. In the morning I literally wouldn't be able to read a thing, and even though it does improve after an hour or so I now constantly have a clouding and aversion to brightness. I can see up close although blurred, the worst thing is trying to look into the distance which is now difficult.
It was the optician who diagnosed it, as I initially went due to the deterioration in my sight rather than the feelings in my eyes which I hadn't really noticed at the time. He just told me it's common because we all use computers etc and that I should use eye drops...
I went to my GP as I found the drops weren't sorting the problem and he prescribed some ointment.
My questions are, should I just accept I have dry eyes and use these products indefinitely or should my GP try to diagnose the underlying cause (if there is one)?
Many thanks (P.S. I'm a 28yo female)
