Dear Dr. SerVaas,
I find so many helpful ideas in the Medical Mailbox that I wanted to share my cure for dry eyes. This column is the main reason I continue to subscribe.
I had severe dry eyes, and my ophthalmologist said to try fish oil before a more expensive prescription product. When I told him I already took fish oil, he said to take more of it. For me, the daily dose became three one-gram capsules of EPA and DHA, divided.
It made all the difference in the world. Now my eyes feel perfectly normal. I would take any amount of fish oil to relieve my painful dry eye syndrome. It felt like sandpaper in my eyes with constant tearing. Please pass the word on.
