Hey Brownskin,

Forgive me if you've mentioned it before (my recall ain't what it used to be), have you seen an opthamologist lately?  If you have, what did he say?

Take care of yourself, okay?

Hey Patze, yes I saw my Opthalmologist about 3 mos ago. He dx me with severe dry eyes, but said that I have no other problems with my eyes [other than astigmatism]. i told him that I had recently seen the Walmart optometrist due to the blurred vision, and he prescribed me some expensive glasses [some special glare lenses with a transition] that he said I need to wear ALL the time. The Opth told me that I actually do not need glasses, except for reading, and the problem is due to the dry eyes. He prescribed the Restasis, and an antibiotic drop because of an eye infection that I was starting to develop [puss in the a.m.]. He also told me that the pain in my eye was due to the dryness, as well as the excess runny eyes-go figure-runny eyes being a symptom of dry eyes. I hope this helps, Patze. If not, feel free to ask me
