Oh the things we try! Some work. Some don’t. Some don’t make a difference. As you know, I was born with EEC and one of the culprits we have to put up with is the never-ending eye problems.
One of the problems I have is very,very dry eyes. I’m at the point that drops do not work. I have to use ointment. Even though I put gobs in my eyes at night, I still wake up with my eye lids stuck to my eye balls.I squrim and wriggle, put my hands over my eyes, and scream inside from the pain.When you try to open them, you can feel the lining of your eye-ball ripping off.
I asked a question on one of the ectodermal sites on Facebook ,what do you do for very dry eyes? One of them wrote and said they use Honey! Honey, I ask?
When they got here, I was like-do I use them or not? Will it damage my eyes? I mean, I am putting honey in my eyes! It is in an official looking box,right?…ha☺ Take a deep breath girl. There are others that use it and they are not having any problems. Honey is a natural cure for things.I take a deep breath and say, ok, here we go! I wash my hands real good. Put a drop on my finger. Insert drop in my eye…..HOLY CRAP!!! It burns like the dickens!! I know it said it would burn…BUT!!! Ok, can I see? I’m not damaged for life am I? It’s getting better. My eyes are watering. Tears are running down my cheek. Wait!! TEARS!! I have TEARS!!!
Now, years ago my eyes would water all the time and I would look like I’m crying The doctors would say I had dry eyes. But, they are not dry, I would say.They water all the time. Of course, that is one of the symptoms of dry eyes. As I got older and dryer, my eyes do not water at all. So, you can see why I was so excited about tears running down my face.
The next thing I wanted it to help was the night-time lid to eye sticking problem. So far, it has helped. At first, I was not sure that it helped till one night I did not use it because of another problem I was having with my eyes. Plus,, the stinging that happens when you put the drops in your eyes. Well, after that night with the lid sticking to the eye again, the stinging is not so bad after all.
I’m still in the experimental stage, but, I do have to say that it is helping with the lid-eye problem.My eyes seem to be clearer. I’m not saying it is for you or it will help you, but this is my experience and the out come so far,even though it stings when you put it in, your eyes do feel better after the stinging subsides. And there is a plus side too-you taste honey every once in a while☺
