... Hi Q. I was using the individual vials then changed to Refresh gels which seemed to work better. I don't believe the gels come in individual vials. I do like the vials better because it is more sterile and a lot easier to apply at work.
My spouse doesn't understand my symptoms. He is upset because I can't do a lot of what we use to do. It hurts because I do need the... (14 replies)
... Tickman....better is subjective to how your eyes react. Vials have no preservatives compared to the bottles. Doesn't mean they are bad....just means that some tend to have preservatives and ingredients that some are more sensitive or allergic, and that can cause an exacerbation of symptoms. The vials are definitely not cost effective, but some can only use them.

... Hi....the individual vials have no preservatives. I use Refresh vials. They are expensive to use daily on an as needed basis, so I save them for when my eyes are really rough feeling or if there's something in there that I can't get out. When that happens, everything tends to get swollen, ugh. They are soothing, but expensive.
What gels did you get? Are they in a... (14 replies)

... I do prefer baby shampoo that I buy in a health food store, not common brands carried in pharmacies or chain stores. I use a small plastic cup, pour in about the equivalent of 1/4 teaspoon shampoo then mix with hot water and stir with my finger. A bottle of shampoo can last me for a year; you can't beat that pricewise. I also use a hot compress as instructed by my... (14 replies)
... Thank you Q for replying. I appreciate it very much. Yes I am seeing an opthalmologist. He says its getting better but I don't feel like it is. After I stopped the antibiotics it seems like it got worse.

... Sounds as though you are going through a horrible time. I dont think the ptosis surgery would have caused it, but maybe there was a contributing factor in exacerbating it if you had a mild case before it.
Are you seeing an ophthalmologist?
Maybe try another scrub? What are you using at this point?
I would suggest asking for a test of the crusts to see if you need... (14 replies)

I do have dry eyes and nose and mouth and some autoimmune issues. I asked my doc if I had sjogrens, since my sister has it, but she... (14 replies)
... Sometimes the inability to improve lies with the methodolgy used for the scrub.
You didn't mention if you do a hot compress on your eyes before the lid scrub. If not, you should do that. Use a washcloth folded up to fit across the eyes, saturated with hot water and the excess water pressed out. Keep it on for about 5 - 10 minutes. That softens up the crusts and internal...
