    Thanks Just me.
    Eric Donnenfeld is a very nice guy as well as great doctor. He was my sister's surgeon for lasik over 10 years ago.

    How are your eyes these days? Better I hope.

    Best wishes,
    Melissa

    HI Melissa

    I have an appointment at the hospital mid February and up until then I'm taking Oxytetracycyline (2) twice daily.

    I've been using a few Viscotears preservative free tears as and when I feel I need them. Sometimes I feel that they do help but other times I'm not so sure.

    I can still feel the left eye gritty feeling although perhaps not as much as I would if I were not on the Oxy tablets. I'm really not sure if the tablets are helping or not.

    I feel that once I have had the appointment I might be able to make a decision as to what to do next. I don't know if they might help (the Hospital) or whether I may have to go it alone as many on here seem to do.

    I haven't as yet bought any of the Thera Tears Nutritional supplements Omega 3, but do have some Omega 3 tablets which I picked up a week ago at a local shop here, but I don't think these are as good for the eyes as the Thera Tears type as I think they are aimed more specifically for the eyes. I may decide on some Thera Tears Omega 3 after the Hospital appointment.

    I do still do regular cleaning of the eyelids but don't feel this helps a lot as there is never anything to wash away. It never seems to feel much easier after cleaning.

    I don't know if the link in my earlier post has brought up anything new or not. Has anyone here tried it. Sorry I'm not as expert on these things as many on here seem to be.

    Thanks Melissa, it's reassuring to know you and many others on here help each other as much as you all do. I wish you all well.
