Customer Question
Is it true that...

Is it true that castor oil drops will keep eyelids from sticking to my eyes while I sleep?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eyelid swollen at all?

No swelling at all. Dealing with it for about 3 weeks now but no discharge and no infection. Better during the day.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've had several autoimmune responses but nothing new now. Is there a treatment other than Refresh tears
