The eye drops are making it worse, period. Our eyes immediately become dependent on these drops and stop trying to make any tears on its own. I’ve been weaning off my drops by doing a few things – 1) changing my diet, eating more plant-based foods and eating 2 tbs. of ground flaxseed a day; 2) take holistic supplements for eye health that have high vitamin A; 3) wear my eyeglasses more in the evenings instead of wearing my contact lens all day; 4) limit screen time at least 30 min. to an hour before bed and 5) The MOST quickest and effective solution by far is to wear an eye mask when you sleep at night. I learned that many people don’t sleep with their eyes fully closed, which contributes to dry eye. Get an eye mask that also functions as a heat compress – a mask you can warm either by placing in the microwave or placing a removable gel insert in hot water to heat it up. I bought this one from Amazon because I don’t have a microwave and really like it. I noticed a difference the next day. My eyes were actually a bit watery on their own!

Please keep in mind it is a process. I hardly use eye drops anymore which is big progress for me, but my eyes still get dry, especially by the end of the day. I’ve only had the eye mask for a week and have been trying many of the techniques I’ve mentioned more recently, and I have seen great progress! I was diagnosed with blepharitis 11 years ago and have been using eye drops on and off ever since. You can do it, you will get better, but you do have to take your health into your own hands. Best of luck on your journey.
