Dealing with dry eye

Getting me bad this fall! Have always been a total contacts user entire adult life with little complications, but recently have to leave them out and go with some 20 yr old, taped up, out of prescription glasses.

This might be my new normal. (Obviously getting new glasses, though) Does anybody else only do contacts for sports?
 
Well.......
My wife has dry eye, and used to have lots of problems with it.
Now, she takes several suppliments, lecithin, tumeric and something called 4sight (expensive) by Ortho Molecular Products,
which she alternates with Eye Antioxidant (less expensive) by Bluebonnet.
Additionally, every morning she puts a warm compress over her eyes for a couple minutes.
And seems to have it under control now.

Can you wear contacts? If so, Dailies Total1 have been a gamechanger for me if they fit your eye.

Otherwise, get some prescription goggles like the ones you see in the NBA.

Make sure it's not macular degeneration.

I would look into Restasis. It is a prescription med but it does work well. It relieves inflammation in the tear duct and allows it to function better. The only bad thing is that if it works for you, you'll need to always be on it. Your eyes will revert to the former dry state if you stop using it.

MSM eye drops help me.
You can buy a 1 or 2 oz bottle of the drops. I make my own using dropper bottles from MZon (1 or 2 oz size) and Kala Health MSM coarse flakes. That MSM has no additives.

1 oz water
1/2 tsp MSM
sterilize everything. Best to use distilled water.
