Nova Tears

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am a chronic blepharitis sufferer and do most of the things that have been posted in this discussion.  I have recently identified through my ophthalmologist that this has had a significant impact on my myobium gland function and as a result I am constantly experiencing dry eye symptoms due to the lipid layer being compromised.  Important for all people suffering from blepharitis to check that they do not also have Myobium Gland Disfunction (MGD).  There are a number of treatments for MGD and a recently discovered eye drop ( Nova Tears) has been promising in reducing the irritation and redness.  In Europe it is known as Evo Tears.  It is a little expensive.  Has anyone else tried these drops.

    i have not tried nova tears, but when i was suffering, for over 50 years, i tired so many solutions and none worked. UNTIL on a whim I tried Aloe vera gel directly onto my eyes. like magic no more ry eyes at night, no more incredible crumbs of tried crud on my eyelashes. today almost a year after that fateful experiment i still do not suffer. my two young boys also suffered from the terror. i tried the same solution on them and once again success. so i suggest you try aloe vera gel from a freshly cut piece of aloe and see what happens. check out my post. one note, be sure to drain the aloe so that the yellow liquid has completely drained, usually ok after one hour. there you go.

    How often do you use the aloe gel and what do you mean drain the yellow?..from your eyes ?

      when one cuts a leaf from the mother plant there is a yellow liquid that will drain from the cut, this is not a beneficial substance for the eye, so one turns the leaf upright and allows the yellow liquid to drain. read my full piece for more detailed info. i was using the liquid three times a day, for only a couple of days. after the first day it was apparent that i had made a successful discovery.. try it, stop the chemical dependence and expense. hope you are as successful as i and my boys. paz

      I never try something new unless a lot of people have used it.

    I have joined to share the following information.

    (I was Googling info on - NovaTears, which a friend's optometrist has recently recommended to my friend..   (So far, NovaTears is working great for my friend).

    Anyway - back to the subject of chronic blepharitis.

    I have had this condition all my life; have seen numerous specialists over several eye related matters including having had several surgeries etc...

    Not once did I hear any of them telling me about my blepharitis...   I thought "eye pain" was just something everyone lived with....   I had no idea of the concept that your eyes were meant to be an organ that "were just there" - functioning without pain, discharge, or discomfort...

    My dry eyes and chronic blepharitis had even contributed to by cornea being damaged, (tearing) - and at one stage it looked like I may have to have a cornea transplant...

    Any way - this all changed, (the dry eyes and chronic blepharitis); when I happened upon a new ophthalmologist and optometrist...

    The optometrist put me onto these 2 x products, (which have changed my life; and now I have no discomfort any more from my eyes..

    Oust Demodex Cleanser

    It's like a foam cleanser - in the shower each morning, I pump about a large coin sized dab onto my fingers; then firmly massage the foam across my CLOSED eyelids, concentrating on the closed slit where the eyelashes are...   Also scrub my eyebrows a bit as well...  Every couple of days I may also use a clean disposable cloth, (a piece of Chux) - to firmly "scrub" the eyelash area...

    As recommended by my optometrist; I take one capsule in the morning, and one in the evening..

    That's it - following the above regime = bye bye chronic blepharitis...

    (I am looking at the NovaTears - because through a series of tests my new optometrist did on my eyes about 3 years ago - he discovered that 55 years of chronic blepharitis had destroyed most of my tear glands/ducts - and hence, I have very little natural tear production...

    I hope this info helps someone...
