Your helpful suggestions continue to flood in for the woman who’s had to give up wearing contacts lenses because of dry eye syndrome. One sufferer has found relief from transcendental meditation (an interesting example of the mind/body link) and acupuncture. Another makes the very obvious suggestion (but worth making, nonetheless) that our sufferer should be drinking plenty of water – around two litres a day, at least – as the eyes are the first to dry up if a person is dehydrated. One reader wonders if inhaled steroids are at the root of the problem, as she’s researched the whole area and has found some association. Another reader, who was also diagnosed with dry eye syndrome, eventually discovered that she was hypothyroid. Several natural remedies failed to remedy the condition, and so she started taking thyroxine.
