Eye Pain - using Restasis but still having problems.

Started by

I have a problem with eye pain. It started about a year ago. At that time I was given the basic lubricating eye drops which helped for a short time. Eventually one plug was put into each eye. This too did not help. I was then given various medications including Fluorometholone. Eventually I was put on Restasis which I am now using.

I have been using Restasis now for 3 months. My eyes are still giving me a lot of problems. When I wake up in the morning my eyes feel fine.but as the day goes by my eyes start to hurt until it becomes practically unbearable. I have been using a wet compress which is soothing as long as I keep it on..

Do you have a humidifier in your living space and bedroom? sometimes this helps.
