I saw a story on channel 9 about a new eye treatment for people with dry eyes. So I found a local optometrist and last week I went to Clearsight Optometry in Ballina and had a treatment using an e-eye IPL laser to activate the tear glands again.
The optometrist said that mine were the most severe dry eyes he had seen but he still thinks he can get at least 50% tears back into my eyes.
He told me things other optometrists haven't mentioned and showed me on video how swollen the tear glands were. To get the swelling down I need to use a hot cloth on my eyes night and morning for 1 minute. I also have to use antibiotic drops for 2 weeks and put Opti-mel Manuka honey gel twice a day. Also 3 x TeraTears Nutrition capsules in the morning.
I need 3 more laser treatments and I hope to have 50% tears back... maybe all. I'll keep you updated each treatment. The optometrist I used can be found here clearsightoptometry.com.au and more info here dry-eyes.com.au
