Does anyone else have this problem- I mean chronic dry eyes they feel dry even 5 minutes after applying eye drops. I have had this problem for years. Tried every eye drop known to man, including Restasis. When I wake up my eyes literally feel glued to together they feel so dry. Also if I close my eyes even for a few minutes, I have to apply eye drops. I have to have eye drops or it is actually painful. I've had ANA and a few other tests for inflammation run and they were negative. I am wondering if specific test for Sjogrens would be warranted. However- I don't really have dry mouth which it seems goes hand in hand with dry eyes in Sjogrens. But who knows, I imagine any illness can present itself atypically. My eye doctor ran that test with the stip of paper under your bottom eye lid and I made NO tears. I've tried pharma grade fish oil and Vit E and all that stuff. Thanks.
