New Strange Symptom, Has anyone had this?
« on: November 09, 2019, 09:06:32 pm »
Today, I woke up and put contacts in and my eyes are suddenly extremely dry.  Never experienced this before.

   Has this happened to anyone else and do you know why and what to do about it besides using rewetting drops?

   Thanks.

Eye dryness is often reported.  You'll find many posts if you do a search.

Are you drinking enough water? I'm talking about over 60 oz's a day?   :smitten:

Thanks everyone.  I drank a lot of water like you all said and also Lemon water with some Braggs vinegar and felt a little better.  My eyes are not as dry now but I am still thirsty.  So drinking more water.  I wonder why this taper makes us feel so dry?  Any Ideas?
