Dr. James :

Hello.

Dr. James :

do you feel them or see them?

Customer :

i feel them

Dr. James :

have you had an eye exam?

Customer :

yes , many with many different docs. no one can see anythything

Dr. James :

Did they say you had dry eyes?

Customer :

is their anything kind of eye drop that is anti fungal that can maybe help?

Customer :

yes they did, but i gurantee that is not that cause of this, also my eye lids are extremely droopy, i really dont think dry eyes cause that

Dr. James :

i doubt you have parasites.

Dr. James :

you most likely have dry eyes.

Dr. James :

there is no need for antifungals.

Dr. James :

Maybe antibiotics, but usually bacterial infections are not as chronic as you have described.

Customer :

i have been on resasis for 7 months, no help.

Dr. James :

what else do you do?

Customer :

is there a really good antibiotic u can think of that i could try?

Dr. James :

what have you tried?

Customer :

i have tried everything, u really dont understand. i ahve used literlly every over the counter moisturizing drops out there, no help at all

Dr. James :

i do understand.

Customer :

i have tried, pred forte, alrex, lotemax, maxitrol, tobramycin, ciprofloxin,

Dr. James :

if you do have dry eyes, then it sounds like a severe case of it.

Dr. James :

You should have your tear ducts plugged up so it keeps your tears from draining away into your nose.

Customer :

i have

Dr. James :

more antibiotics is not an answer.

Dr. James :

you're young to have such dry eyes.

Dr. James :

do you have dry mouth as well?

Customer :

in the mourning after wake up sometimes, but not really

Dr. James :

it certainly seems like you've tried everything.d

Dr. James :

i think you need to work closely with your ophthalmologist.

Dr. James :

you may consider going to your general doctor for them to check for a condition called sjogrens, which causes dry eyes and mouth.

Dr. James :

i don't think antifungals, antibiotics are the answer for you.

Dr. James :

you should use non-preserved artificial tears frequently, 1 drop every 1-2 hours.

Customer :

okay, what treatments can they give me if i have sjogrens?

Dr. James :

Sjogren's is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the glands of the body.

Dr. James :

There are treatments to decrease the effectiveness of your immune system.

Customer :

okay then.

Dr. James :

Similar to the prednisone drops you have had for your eyes, but for the whole body.

Dr. James :

Do you have any other questions.

Customer :

yes just one more, along wit this feeling , i am hearing a cracking sound in my eyes, it sounds like a squishy cracking sound , like clicking , any ideas ?

Dr. James :

it's from the dryness.

Customer :

kk

Dr. James :

when you eyes are well lubricated, the eyelids slide nicely pass each others.

Dr. James :

if they are dry, you may get more sounds and clicking feeling.

Customer :

got it. thank u
