== == * NEVER play around with your eyes and over-the-counter drops. It's time to see your optometrist! * For dry eyes I use Gel Tears which comes in 10g tubes and is one of the carbomer 980 group. It has been recommended for me by my optometrist. In the UK it is produced by the Chauvin Pharmaceuticals LTD. Gel Tears is a clear gel which has no permanent side effects (unless you are allergic to any of the ingredients)and it was especially designed to be used by people who do not produce enough natural tears. it can also be used by people who suffer from sore eyes when their tear film is unstable. (quoted from the Gel Tears leaflet)
