... Hi Everyone, since February of this year, my eyes have been going through a lot of not so great changes. Up until then, my vision and eye health have been pretty stable. I'm 40 and have been wearing contact lens for 20 years or so. I'm pretty nearsighted with my lens prescription at -10.
Wondering if anyone has similar issues and how you managed to resolve it?

... Hi, I'm just going to try to keep it quick.
For the past few months, the eye doctors have said I have blepharitis/mgd. I would get some burning and stinging and my lids would hurt or feel really sore at times.

... Hi xandrr - I am so sorry to hear that your blepharitis/mgd came back. That's very frustrating. At least you were able to have a few months where your eyes felt pretty good, so that is hopefull. I'm still on a very low dose of doxycycline (50mg/day) and I've been able to keep the symptoms at bay so far. I'm just wondering what will happen when I go off the antibiotics, too. My... (2 replies)

... About 9 months ago I woke up and my left eye was in stinging, searing pain. It went away, and my vision has been unaffected, but since then I've had dry eyes in both eyes.
However, on the occasions when I manage to produce tears and cry (emotional tears), only the right eye produces tears. The left remains dry. I also feel a lump in the lacrimal gland area, a foreign body... (7 replies)

... My eyes have been slightly dry for a while. I want to blame LASIKS (July 2007), but I think it started before that when I could no longer wear my contacts. As of 6 months ago they got extremely dry. I didn't know what was going on, they felt like someone turned off the faucet to my eyes. I went to 5 different doctors. Some said I had nothing wrong and my eyes looked healthy.... (0 replies)

If you have bumps along the... (5 replies)

I am also a guy suffering from MGD. Did you get around to trying the "light therapy"? I am curious but have just recently heard about it. I have finally managed to stabilize my problems but I still get regular flare ups.
