Hi! My husband Rick has not been helped by botox injections and has almost constant burning and stinging in his eyes - anyone know of something that helps?
Thanks,
Kathy

Sounds like a case of very dry eyes and could lead to corneal abrasions/ulcers if it is not already to that point. Ointments or very thick oily drops and cover the eyes when he sleeps, because the eyes often open during sleep after Botox and/or eye surgery or just as a symptom of BEB. After the worst is over very thick good eye drops day and night and keep covering the eyes to sleep or rest. May need corneas examined to see how they look. Let the doctor know what is going on. Celluvisc is oily drop that is good and something like Thera Tears works for me to use night and day. I hate the ointments because it blurs my vision, but when I had a corneal abrasion I had to use it for a couple of days to heal the cornea. Serious dry eyes can lead to serious problems and is nothing to fool around with. Warm or cold compresses sometimes help after putting in the drops or ointments. Everyone is different and it depends on what feels best to him. I like the warm better. Cold tends to make my eyes tighten up.

Do as Delaine said, its good advice. Just make sure anything you put in the eyes is preservative-free.
