Red, I sympathize with you. After starting the UC drugs, I was told I had mild dry eye by an opthalmologist but it didn't bother me. Lately, my eyes have become gritty and even my eyball feels funny. and I can't wear my contacts for very long. I saw an optomistrist for new contacts and she gave me some drops called Soothe and they have worked fairly well but I find I must be consistant with them and use them at least 2 x per day and not put in my contacts for 5 minutes after using the drops.
Good luck with your primary, they seem to have tunnel vision.
