Treating the Symptoms of Dry Eye - Joanne's Story Dr. Gong gave me numerous eye drops. Some of them worked fine, some of them worked better. They also, dry, warm cloth on your eyes work very well. There is also treatments out there – Tranquileyes that help very well, feels really good if you have severe dry eyes. As soon as I started up the routine of putting the drops in my eyes and hydrating them I have less sensitivity to light because my eyes were burning any time there was a great light. I can drive without sunglasses even though I shouldn’t. So I wake up less watery, I mean I still have a little bit burning in the morning, but it’s not watering like it was. If I can give advice to another woman how to deal with dry eyes I would say don’t give up because when I first started drops the first set did not work. I felt like it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do so I continued to try other drops. Dr. Gong gave me other solutions and eventually it works.
