I've had dry eyes for years and used Carbomer eye drops when necessary. However, over the past 4 months my eyes have got progressively worse and are now sore, itchy, inflamed and extremely uncomfortable. I saw my optician, who did a dry eye test and showed that they were extremely dry - 3 seconds on the Tear Break-up Time test. I am using Lacro-Lube at night and am on my second trial of daytime drops. So far, Systane and Carmellose haven't made a great deal of difference.
I'm seeing my GP next week and am wondering whether to now ask to see a specialist. How have others coped with this problem? Did you see a specialist? Was it helpful?
