The first thing you can do is switch to an ointment, such as Refresh PM or lacrilube. This will work better then the drops but will also blur your vision.
If this doesn't work you can use medical tape to tape your eyelids closed. This is especially helpful at night.
If that doesn't work you can have a temporary lateral tarsorrhaphy
. This is done in the doctors office under local anesthesia where a removable suture is placed so as to mostly close your eyelids, keeping them open just enough so you can see. This is very safe, 100% reversible when your Bells Palsy wears off and works extremely well.
Using this step-wise approach I am sure you can get relief from your symptoms and protect your eye from drying out. Of this, I have no doubt.
