My eye doctor says that FM is breaking down the fat in my eyes causing a condition known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca or dry eye disease. He says the eye is covered by a layer of fat, a layer of water and a layer of oil. FM breaks down the fat and causes the eye to burn, sting, feel like there is something like sand in the eye and waking with a lot of matter in the eye in the morning. He gave me a couple of over-the-counter meds, drops and a gel to use at night. Says if that doesn't help he'll prescibe Restasis. Sad to say I was more excited about him actualy knowing about FM. I have spent over 12 years fighting this DD and everyone saying it was all in my head and he KNEW about FM. This board and books and articles are making a difference. There will come a time when people will say yes, I know about that.
