Dry Eyes
Hi Doc

I suffer from dry eyes and as a result it is always red. It causes much discomfort and I use natural tears but it does not provide much relief. Is there anything else which I can use to remedy this?

Wiwi, there are different products available that may help with dry eye syndrome. These include Celluvisc®, Duratears®, Hypotears Plus®, Spersatear®, Teargel®, Tears Naturale® and Viscotraan®. Unfortunately I can’t tell you which one would be the best for you, so you will have to test drive a couple of them. The one that works for me is Tears Naturale® preservative free single dose units. If it doesn’t improve after having tried a few, the best would be to see an ophthalmologist (eye specialist). Good luck.
