    I went to the eye doc last week. Got a good report. However, doc says that I have severely dry eyes which strains retina, cornea, nerves and all that. Doc says do not, I mean DO NOT take visine and such products; these products constrict the eyes muscles and dry them out. Doc
    says use artificial tears because it is like a lotion for the eyes; it moisturizes them.

    So make your eyeballs happy...

    It's a symptom of Fibromyalgia. He said to use artifical tears as often as needed and to try and close my eyes for a few seconds when I can throughout the day.

    I've tried several brands of drops for dry eyes and found that Bauch & Lomb Advanced Eye Relief works the best for me.

    Does anybody have eye twitching with the dry eyes? It is driving me crazy.
    Also thanks for the information on artificial tears.
