FreshKote (ocular lubricant): I suffered from dry eye after having LASIK eye surgery several years ago. I tried Restasis (which didn't help) and was using Over The Counter artificial tear drops several times per day. My husband (who had just graduated from optometry school at the time) started me on Freshkote, and it has worked great. I use it twice daily, and rarely need artificial tears anymore.
GenTeal (ocular lubricant): I have extremely dry eyes due to Sarcordosis. Have used GenTeal gel for many years but I have not been able to find it for at least a year. I am now trying GenTeal night-time ointment at night. I prefer the gel. The GenTeal gel has a pointed tip and is so great for day and night. I can use just a small amount during the day and it doesn't blur my vision.
I have tried so many eye drops but nothing compares to the gel.
FreshKote (ocular lubricant): I have Sjogrens and extremely dry inflamed eyes. I have used plugs and a lot of different eye drops including Restasis. My doctor added Fresh Kote to my Restasis and Altrex. As badly as it stings, it coats my eye and has provided more relief than the plugs. Unfortunately I have to change insurance and it will not be covered, so I will have to pay for it on my own. I highly recommend you try it.
FreshKote (ocular lubricant): I have been using Restasis drops for approx 5 years, but still suffer from severe dry eyes. My doctor gave me a sample of Fresh Kote to try. At first the stinging alarmed me, but within a few minutes my eyes felt refreshed. These are the first drops that I've actually felt some relief. I haven't had to purchase them yet, but they can't be any more expensive then Restasis drops.
FreshKote (ocular lubricant): This is the first prescription eye drops that has worked wonders for my severe dry eyes. Nothing else has worked but Fresh Kote has been a wonderful relief and it doesn't burn when I use it.
TheraTears (ocular lubricant): I had used numerous other eye drops in the course of 3 years prior to being diagnosed with Sjorgen's Syndrome. The only succesful drops were the Theratears (single usage-no preservatives). Unfortunately it has been just in the past 8 months or so that I have not been able to purchase this product at any drug store located in South Central Ontario Canada. Once again I needed to try some other drops that where accessible to me. No success and much frustration. I decided to take the big step and order on-line directly from the company. (Never thought I would do something like this but I was desparate) Thank you ever so much for shipping this product because it is indeed a life saver. Thank you Theratears.
