Suffering from Dry eyes
Dry eyes from past 4 years when I underwent Lasik surgery to correct myopia . Since then I am using flogel ultra ( lubricating) eye drops and also giving warm compresses to eyes but giving warm compresses only doesn't work so I am using lubricating drops on daily basis..don't know exactly what I am doing is right or wrong.? plz suggest me something that doesn't ruin my eyes in the long run. And what else can be done to protect my eyes? Sometimes If I stop using drops my eyeball sticks to my eyelid ..feels difficulty during morning. Help me?
