I wanted to share my discovery, in the hope it may help some of you who are suffering.
I have suffered with dry eyes for a number of years & tried various prescribed ointments & over the counter remedies, all of which only gave short lived relief.
However, about a month ago I sent for an 'eye wheaty bag mask', and I have to say it's the best £10 I have ever spent. Night & morning I stick it in the microwave for 1 minute & then cover my eyes with it for about 3/4 minutes. ( the instructions actually only advise 40 seconds) The heat stimulates the numerous oil glands in the eyes, & for me it has worked to such an extent, that I no longer use anything else. It has been wonderful.
