I had excimer Lasix 20years ago, cataract op in Feb and March. I suffer from extremely dry eye in right eye. Had a severe sticky red and swollen lids in right eye 2 months after op. SpersadexCo helped to clear after the cause.

I go for 6months checkup as I also have retinal detachment...
Left eye the same, not as severe - also course of SpersadexCo
Right eye started again, SpersadexCo brings immediate relief. Right eye burns, stings, bottom lid swells. Use natural tears. This brings no relief.

Dr has now prescribed Optive Plus and teargel at night. I used this since last weekend. Eyes were fine for 5 days, then right eye became 'sticky' at night, blurred, swollen lids etc.

I got the advise to smear the teargel around my eyes, but this resulted in an irritation and rednes, burning

Could the drops and gel have an effect on my lids if come in contact

(For the past 6weeks our building is in 'repairs'. Breaking throught walls for doors, gasburning of paint from doors and windows, painting, etc.
Could this also contribute to the dry/allergy eye(right eye is really bad) I do not put any eye makeup on for fear of swelling after wards.
