Dr. Rick :

Glad to hear that you had a chance to see a cornea specialist. You shouldn't have to do the lid scrubs for the rest of your life but you may have to occasionally use a tear supplement, such as thera tears or tears naturale etc forever.

Dr. Rick :

This is just one of the many joys that comes from living too long :o)
