  2. I have a complicated relationship with my eyes, need drops everyday, but they don't seem to be dry…I wonder why dry eye issues are becoming more of an issue in our world?

  3. It's inflammatory:

    The solution is to stop eating dead animals and move to a healthy, species-appropriate, whole-food plant-based diet. And eat about a tablespoon of freshly ground flax seeds every day to increase the ratio of omega3: omega 6 fatty acids:

  4. I need some help.
    I got my vision checked from 3 different clinics in a course of a week and all 3 gave me different prescription. What Should I do?

  5. i really want to improve my eyesight with active focus.
    I have myopia. Left eye is 2.0 diopters and right eye is 2.5 diopters.
    If anyone of you can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated!

  6. Hello again and thank you for your very informative as always post. My problem is that with my real eye as I call it I have no problem however with my prosthesis it gets really dry.

  7. Dr, can you please help me ? I have floaters tht got stuck to my pupils especially my right eye, making it very very hard to see and read, in fact I can barely see, my eye dr says he doesn't know what happen and he can not operate otherwise he could blind me. Do you know of any drops that could probably help me? Thank really appreciate it.

  8. I learned a hard listen of using tap water for my humidifier. Please use distill water to avoided paying out a lot of money. 😂

  9. how great was this timing..Tonight my eyes were dry and i was straining so much .I now realize it was the air conditioner ,i couldnt work out as it isnt blowing onto my face but is taking the humidity out of the air..Thanks for the video Perfect

  10. Please do a video on broken blood vessel. Why does it happen. How to best treat it. How long does it take to resolve?

  11. It would be better if you wash your face five times a day and wash your mouth five times a day I’ll probably your ears to five times a day you keep yourself moist I would do Sam to 👍🌿🌿🌾

  12. My eyes are so dry that I feel as if my eyes were wrapped in a flimsy opaque layer. My eyelids are stiff, sticky… no amount of eye drops, gels, warm compasses can give me relief….

  13. Another great video Doc. I suffered with dry eye for years. I was using Thera Tears 4 times a day (when I remembered) My Dr. recommended serum eye drops made from my blood. He does NOT freeze them and believes that freezing removes the protein. I used them for two months and my eyes feel so much better and now I need no drops. Oh I also purchased a pair of blue light glasses for the computer as you recommended. Staring at a computer definitely irritates my eyes. I also have insomnia so the glasses help with that also.

  14. You are amazing always with your insights and resources. One question would infuses act like humidifiers at night. I realize I dont use distilled water which I will change to.

  15. Hi dr Alan. You have explained it all so clearly. I have sjorgens and R.A. and have very severe dry eyes. I use preservative free liquid drops by day and gel by night. I have now found by using the gel by day in the winter while indoors and the heating is on that it lasts longer and feels more soothing than liquid drops. But I never considered that the wind could reduce the tears from my eyes. So I will be mindful of that when im outside. Thanks for educating me keep up the great work. Teresa

  16. I liked the Ziena eyeglasses. I've tried regular work goggles that go over my eyeglasses but there is no seal. Thanks for the discount. Having cataract surgery (2/24) on my eye that had an ocular melanoma tumor on the optic nerve 2017. Am 65 and will check out your video on helping prevent cataracts for my right eye. Thanks again for all your good information.

  17. Hi Doctor, Thanks for the information a couple of questions please: 1. Do the moisture chamber eyeglasses require special and frequent cleaning and 2. Do they sit comfortably around the eyes (close enough for those of us with prescription eyewear) and form a seal. Appreciate your feedback!

  18. I was diagnosed with EBMD (Epithelial Basement Membrane Dystrophy) and Dry Eye Disease is a secondary condition. I just went through Corneal Epithelial Debridement in my right eye three weeks ago. My vision has gotten so much better in that eye already. My optometrist has never been able to get me close to 20/20 vision because if I blinked, it would completely change everything. I had an amazing doctor that performed the debridement. But one of the best suggestions she gave me was since I run a fan at night was to use gel eye drops and a 3D memory foam sleep mask before and after the procedure. It has really helped. Also, a preservative free eye drop like TheraTears or Refresh Optive Advanced. Refresh Optive is safe for use with contacts which is a bonus. My optometrist has been suggesting plugging my tear ducts as the next step for my dry eyes.

  19. I hate having dry eyes… I had no problems wearing lenses from 2019 march to like november 2019. Now it has become a big problem.I went to an eye doctor twice, and it looks better now, but I still feel like my eyes are dry. I cannot wait until it gets warmer outside…. I am from norway, so the winter is lasting long..

    Do you have any recommendations for good eye drops, or eye gel? I have not watched the video yet, but I will now. I am using Cationorm, and I got Oxyal Gel from my eye doctor. Maybe I will switch over to glasses permanently. I have -1,00 and -1,25 in lenses, so I can see ok without.

    Awesome videoes! I like to watch them.

  20. New subscriber here! Ive always been fascinated by eyes so i look forward to learning from this channel 😊 oh and my favorite dry eye tip was the one about wearing sunglasses…here in NYC is does get quite windy (although nothing like Minnesota), so i will be sure to buy sunglasses similar to those soon..although i may look like i was in the matrix movie lol

  21. The Bruder compress that you recommended has been helpful to me. It was a gift from my niece who also uses it. What do you think of the Optive drops with omega-3 flax? Help or hype?

  22. Dr., I’m a student pilot and I’m looking for a prescription sunglasses, which color lenses (gray, brown, green, etc) are the optimum for that type of environment (Sunny sky or white/gray overcast days)?

  23. Hi, thanks alot for your informative channel. I have a question which has made me worried for a while , I wear glasses and each of my eyes number is approximately 5 (myopia )and about 1( astigmatism). I always thought that it can be fixed by operation till someone told me that didn't you know it decreases the eyesight accuracy and causes other problems, you know I'm first year medical student and I have heard that the procedure will limit your residency choices(such as specific fields of surgery) as it causes the decrease in eyesight acuracy
    I just wanted to know that are these sentences true or not

  24. I think one thing I didn't know about dry eye is that I read things wrong and say it out loud wrong, especially on the computer, and more specifically reading dates. For example, I might see a date of 2/4/20, and I might read it out loud as April 2nd (I live in the USA). My eye doctor was examining my eyes for glaucoma, and she said that's dry eye.

    I used the preservative free gel drops. They work really well. I also have a humidifier in my office and home.

  25. Good day Doc! I am a fan from the Philippines. I just wanted to ask if you've heard about ionspec glasses that is becoming a trend in asia. Is it really effective? Or is it just a scam? Thanks for your help. Hope you could create a video about this. 😊😁

  26. Thank you for the updates on dry eye! My dry eye seems to really only bother me in the evening. But it is so bad that I keep eye drops under my pillow because my eyelids actually stick to my eyeballs and will tear my eye. Very painful. So I need to put drops in my eyes to open them. I do use a humidifier but I think that will need to use the eye gel at night. Thanks again doctor!

  27. Very informative video, I must say.
    Thanks!
    I like to watch your videos as every time I get some or other new knowledge about eyes health.
    But I have to point out one thing here … sir, you speak very fast. I have to struggle continuesly to get through it.
    English isn't my mother tongue, and the accents are very challenging. Can I request you to speak a little slowly. Thank you … sir!

  28. Dr. Pls pls reply 🙏🙏🙏
    If a person is wearing anti glare blue light cut (filter /blocking) glasses with UV 400 protection ,
    Is that person 100 % safe from sun ’s bright light and digital screens lights ?

    OR Does he also need any other protection ? (like getting dark tinted glasses {like photochoromic lens} to get protected from sun ’s bright light and digital screen lights)
    If there is anything left , then please inform me.
