Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
It sounds that it is a consequence of your Dry Eye Syndrome from your description ( not sounding that you are describing symptoms of an infections conjunctivitis or allergic conjunctivitis..) I think FOLLOW UP with your opthomologist is what is most needed to your case. You might benefit from RESTASIS eye drops if that has not been tried..
Other potential options for RX eye drops may be of more help to you...
I hope that this is helpful for you.
Let me know if you have further questions. I will be happy to get back with you.

Hello again ---
Ok it sounds that your case is challenging as you have consulted an opthalmologist and some measures would not be good choices of you have had ocular herpes ....I am a Family practice MD and I will opt out as there are ophthalmologists on this site ...I think they may be more helpful for you potentially ...it sounds that my ideas such as lacrilube and Restasis have been shot down already.
Hold on as another expert will pickle up your question ....
