I am having a hard time keeping them lubricated. Thanks!

    If you occasionally have dry eyes and are looking for something reliable, you could try REFRESH PLUS lubricating eye drops. They come in preservative-free single-use vials. I fly a lot and always carry a couple of vials with me.

    BUT, if you're having constant dry eyes, you should see your opthamologist to rule out anything serious.

    Definitely be tested for "Dry Eye Syndrome" first. After my Opthamologist tested my eyes for dry eye syndrome he recommended I use "Natural Tears". I use them several times a day every day and have for years. Recently I was advised I could also use a special eye lubricant for overnight but it can make the eye temporarily blurry so be careful.

    Please do check with your Dr before using any drops.

    Similasan is a great OTC brand, but I believe there's a bit of mercury in it (unless they changed it). It was the only thing I could use that worked for me back when mine were super dry. It's at most grocery stores, pharmacies, and Target.

    And yes, maybe ask your eye doc.

    My eye doc has me use thera tears. He said it is most important to use the drops without preservatives. They come in individual little vials.

    I agree that you should see an ophthalmologist. Eyes are nothing to take a chance on.

    Chris there are several different eye drops for dry eyes but some can make the condition worse. I suggest speaking to your pharmacist or better yet an eye doctor. For your own safety the eyes are too precious.

    My eye doctor recommended Polyethylene Glycol 400 0.4% with Propylene Glycol 0.3%.

    Yes, I should have been more specific about seeing an eye Dr. There are many causes, and only w/a diagnosis can the proper treatment be given. Good luck!

    Restasis is a prescription brand that works well. The key is getting to the cause. Wishing you luck!!
