Customer Question

I'm ***** *****. I have suffered very dry eyes since cataract surgery 10 months ago. Treatments have included several rounds of steroid eye drops,antibiotic eye drops, restasis which I could not tolerate, lipiflo, and as of yesterday punctual plugs. Nothing has helped. I use preservative eye drops many times throughout the day. Any hope of this getting better? By the way I also use heat packs, eye hygiene, tear duct expression.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: That's all. My eyes were healthy before cataract surgery.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Eye Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
