Dry Eye Syndrome from Long time
Hello. I was diagnosed with dry eye syndrome many months ago. I took many treatments but not able to get rid of this condition. I have severe pain in my eyes. By profession I have to work on laptop for long duration. I take breaks too, but again when I start working on laptop my eyes starts paining. The pain is like with burning sensation and pain. I frequently apply tear drops, but no help. I am very very depressed now due to this 24*7 eye pain. Please help me.

Hello, I believe there are lot many factors responsible for your symptoms. Ankylosing spondylitis - can give rise to red eye and pain eyes which you need to look out for in near future and report asap to an ophthalmologist. Fibromyalgia is giving u pain in eyes and dryness apart from excessive computer work.
Next Steps
visit an ophthalmologist for dilated refraction/ tear function test/convergence and extraocular muscle motility. Get optic nerves examined as well. after consulting with your doc u can start with high mol weight lubricants like hyla / hymoist/ eubri eye drops 4-6times a day. add lubricant gel like lacryl pf/genteal at bed time. add cyclomune eyedrops 0.05% 2 times a day for 3 month.(auto immune factors are responsible for chronic dryness)
Health Tips
follow 20/20/20rule. get your vit d and thyroid profile in check. add flax seeds to your diet. consult a physician for fibromyalgia and pain management ,a rheumatologist for assessing AS
