When I went to him, I thought I just had very bad "pink eye" which I tried different home remedies on including that boric acid solution but I finally made an appointment because I could see my iris raising up off of my conjunctiva and that scared me enough to go in. I think that is what he meant by, "both eyes with limbar and corneal involvement."
I looked up the Eye Wash Bausch and Lomb you used - you said it didn't work long run, so don't bother with it?
I did try Australian Tea Tree Oil mixed with Johnson's Baby Shampoo - just tiny drop of Tea Tree oil, with 2 drops of baby shampoo in 100 ml water - to wash lids, lashes. The Tea tree oil is very strong so be careful.
My insurance won't cover it because as the doctor explained the company originally marketed the product over the counter but then decided to go the prescription route instead because they could make much more that way. Well that messed up how the insurance companies look at the product and consequently coverage. It is over $300 as a prescription.:thumbdown:
There are generic "equivalents" on Amazon. I bought this one but I find it slightly irritating which I didn't get with the Avenova.
So that is when I tried the tea tree. It was too strong but then I mixed it with some almond oil in a ratio of about 1 drop of the tea tree to maybe 2-4 tsps of the almond oil and that was do-able; still a bit strong where you get the warmth of the tea tree but also soothing.
Thanks so much for the link to Amazon for the German eye drop Hylo-Forte Hyaluronic acid.
I can't remember the ingredients because I threw the box out but they are minimal--only about 4 ingredients but I suspect I am probably allergic to one of those.
Of course thinking about it, I don't notice the irritation right away. It's just that by the end of the day after using it my eyes are a bit red and the eye lashes feel gloppy and itchy so maybe it is plugging the glands a bit with the coating. On the eyeballs it actually feels very good. Maybe I should just wait an hour and then wash my eyelashes to get it off of those. I still think it is a good product.
Lastly read the guy's thing from cfsremission on Mutaflor - I don't get it, what is Mutaflor?
Sorry for the long post. I do hope I've answered all of your questions in a satisfactory way. You can let me know if you have any more questions for me.
