Does anyone else with dry eyes have trouble reading? After just a few paragraphs my eyes feel really strained and not too long after that I start to get a headache. I would love to be able to read the newspaper or a book again! I've had extreme dry eyes for a year now. I'm on restatsis and an eye lubricant before I go to bed. Eye drops usually irritate the lids and seem to harm more than they help. Does everyone with dry eyes have trouble reading?

Get an eye exam. You might just need some reading glasses or glasses with some prism in them. That could fix the eyestrain and headache issue (probably not the dry eye, though).
