YOUR EYE DRYNESS IS NOT GOING TO AFFECT YOUR BABY. OPTHALMOLOGISTS ARE CORRECT, YOU HAVE TO USE LUBRICANT DROPS. THERE IS NO OTHER TREATEMNT FOR YOUR CONDITION

Hi,first of all Congratulations for your pregnancy. Rekfa is good for baby's growth. For dry eyes other then lubricants you can pour water over eyes 5 to10 times a day. If working with computer consciously blink your eyes 20times at 20 minutes interval.Take good quantity of liquids.
