I have been diagnosed with dry eye syndrome. It is managed with drops and gel. When I bend down my eyeballs itch. I hope this is not a sign of anything else, e.g., high blood pressure.

I was having serious dry eye syndrome. My eye had burning and pain whenever my eyes are exposed to sunlight. Now I am using On Tears eye drops which has really helped me a lot.

My 85-year-old wife was prescribed Restoril to aid in sleep. Within 3 days she started to experience dry eye syndrome which ultimately resulted in an abrasion of the eyeball requiring extensive treatment to heal. As soon as the Restoril was stopped the dry eye disappeared.
