Dry eyes...An optometrist believes that I may have chronic dry eye syndrome. This exam was for a check up and renewal of glasses and contacts prescription.
Here are the 3-month long symptoms as I described them to the Optometrist:
1. The eyes don't seem to bother me during the day or even while wearing contacts.
2. Eyes sting anytime when getting just water in them (not a problem before)
3. No redness or swelling noticed on the eyes or eyelids.
4. No pus.
5. Can push on inner corner of eyelids - used to have a "squishing" sound - now nothing at all.
6. Eyelids & corner of eyes don't get the usual oiliness. Contacts used to be oily by end of day.
7. The most annoying complaint is that when waking up my right eyelid seems to stick to the eyeball - not the lower and upper eyelids to each other. I have to keep my eyelid closed and rub around on the lid to release.
8. I started back on Arbonne's progesterone cream per articles suggesting perimenopause period can bring about dry eye syndrome. Registered dietician suggests 1/2 pump AM and PM daily except during period.
9. Registered Dietician says that often chronic dry eyes can be caused by the adrenals not producing enough DHEA. She told me to take 25 mg in the AM only for one month. If this doesn't help then there could be something else going on.
Can you make any recommendations for homeopathic remedies to rid me of dry eye syndrome?
Thank you for your help.

My homeopath dr. told me that my dry eye syndrome is caused from bile that is too thick. This is caused from eating too much "sticky" or "gooey" foods that muck up the gall bladder. He put me on A-F Betafood by Standard Process 2 3x daily and told me to lay off high highly refined and processed foods as much as possible.
