I have both Sjogrens and lupus, and my eyes were so dry I could barely open them. They were also so sensitive to light it was dangerous to drive. I work with a computer all day, and that certainly doesn't help. My eye doctor suggested Restasis, but I wanted to try a more holistic approach. OTC eye drops only worked for a short time, and made my vision blurry for 30 minutes after.

So I came here and read about using Castor Oil on the lids at night. Well, I didn't have any Castor Oil but I did have a high quality Cod Liver oil, so I opened a gel cap and spread the oil on my eyelids (and my dry elbows) before bed time to give it a try. The very next morning my eyes felt soooo much better! WOW! And it lasts all day. I didn't even need the eye drops. What a Godsend! I skipped a night the other day and my eyes felt much drier that day, so now I don't skip a night. Been doing it for two weeks now, and feel so much better, and my eyes aren't red anymore, either. Thank you!!!
