   What other eye drops are you using besides lacrilube eye gel? What symptoms do you have if you do not use the eye gel?

Thanks for the information.
If lacrilube is not suiting you, then you can use lubricating eye drops like Systane/genteal/refresh tears/optive eye drops. These are all available OTC. There is another eye gel also available called genteal eye gel. You can try using this instead of lacrilube.
