I was bothered by itchy, red eyes and blurriness. I had noticed that when my mother passed away I couldn't cry. When I went to the eye doctor I mentioned this and she tested my eyes and said that I had extremely dry eye syndrome. I also have rheumatoid arthritis so she says I am at risk for Sjogrens. She gave me a prescription for Restasis and said it could take up to five months to work. She said to use that twice a day and to use Systane Balance eye drops 4-6 times a day. Well, 6 months later and my eyes still get itchy, red and I at times have to put a cool compress on my eyes because they burn. I did notice that I was getting a bit of moisture in my eyes the other day. Anyone else get these symptoms on restasis?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
