Does anyone else suffer with painfully, dry, irritated eyes? 
I am using Ristasis twice a day plus dry eye drops and nothing is helping....feels like I have gravel in my eyes.  I am on Paxil plus meds for Crohn's........

Do you suffer from anxiety becuase when you are anxious your pupils dilate and feel heavy and dry, try and relax and see if it occure then otherwise see a optician.
