I know a number of you are using different nutritional supplements to help with your overall eye health. Some of you have mentioned Bilberry and Thera Tears.

I've been searching on the internet, trying to learn more. I came across this site and was wondering if anyone has tried these sublingual drops?

Has anyone tried the BioTears instead of the Thera Tears? This is their site:

Also, I would appreciate any info about good reputable places to order supplements from.

Thanks.

Karen,

I have been using the Thera-Tears drops (including the night-time liquid gel) & have gotten some relief. I tried the Thera-Tears capsules & did not have such good luck - after the first week I could taste fish & was very nauseated. I have not tried the others you mention.

I've hit two months since my first Botox treatment and still OK, yeah! Have continued to try different combinations of essential fatty acids and Vitamins. Have noticed significant improvement twice with the Black Currant Seed Oil. Tried it, went off, then back on three weeks later. The Moistur-Eye gel caps, by Carlson, is also I think very helpful. It is a combination of Salmon oil and borage oil.
I also find that a solid night's sleep makes a huge difference. Also, per another tip, I place a warm cloth over my eyes every morning in the shower, massaging gently. I have to thank everyone on this list for their ideas. It has made the difference between surviving and having a normal lifestyle.
A study I read about Bleph surveyed what helps people the most who have this condition. It confused me that the Bleph foundation was the most helpful, even before Botox. However, after using the tips I've found here, I definitely agree with the study results.

I have tried thera tears, flaxseed, and now I'm using Moistur-eye gel caps by Carlson, and I do think it makes a difference with dry eyes. I use gen teal drops during the day an at night, with a mask. I wash my eyelashes with baby shampoo on a wash cloth every morning. I think all of this help. dottie
