Many dry eye sufferers feel hopeless until they find relief.

If doctors are unable to diagnose and treat your condition to alleviate your debilitating symptoms, if you are given more lubricating drops, lid wipes, and instructions to apply warm compresses by yet another doctor, you may fall into despair and hopelessness.

You may think that there is nothing else that doctors can do for you. But that’s not true. There is much more that can be done beyond prescribing lubricating drops, lid wipes, and warm compresses.

The key is remembering that you are not alone, and that there is always hope.
