Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology and retina surgery experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Ask Your Own Eye Question

You can use some artificial tears to soothe your eyes.

Also put a small amount of lubricating ointment at bedtime. Lacrilube and refresh PM are good brand names.

This should help.

Does this make sense to you?
