8- Chief Complain: pain in the left eye. there is a bulging red area on the sclera next to the pupil which my eye doctor has diagnosed as "thickening of the sclera". The pain in the eye is centered in this area. When I read a book or use the computer the pain increases. But I sometimes wake up with it. My doctor's diagnosis is dry eye and I'm using restasis to treat it. I have been using it for over 5 months now without any improvement. I have seen five different doctors and they all agreed on the same diagnois. During my last visit my doctor increased the times of restaisis use to three times a day and asked me to see him in 3 months for evaluation.
I don't think that eye dryness is the problem since my eye continues to be painful even when I'm using the eye drop and when it's not exactly dry. i believe the pain is related to the nerves. I am desperate since i've been suffering this condition for over 4 years now. I have spent so much money on eye doctors and eye drops and there has not been any improvement at all. Please help me.

3 months after the lazik surgery I had 2 lumps one in the upper eyelid and one in the lower of the left eye. My eye doctor performed an eye surgery to remove them and following the surgery my eye problems started. I changed this doctor and explained what had happened to the new doctors but they all said there was no connection between the scar on my eyelids and the area on the sclera which is the location of pain. They also agreed on the same diagnosis which is dryness.
