Hi, I have developed chronic dry eye in one eye (weird).I don't know if the cause is due to my constant use of antihisamine drugs and eyedrops or my keratoconus but does anyone have any alternative treatment ideas as I appear to be allergic to dry eye drops.
I take Vit A, flaxseed and fish oil supplements as this is supposed to help and have tried using saline drops as an alternative but I'm not having much luck.

Hi Ford, welcome to Healingwell :) So you've tried prescription drugs such as Restasis for dry eye and you couldn't use them? What about otc Systane eye drops.....same thing? I don't really have many suggestions.....I'm sorry :( What does your eye doc have to say about this?
