I used to suffer from recurrent corneal erosion - a condition where the top surface of the eye would be torn, usually after opening my eyes upon awakening in the morning. This would happen almost every morning, and it was aggravated by my eyes severely drying out overnight (as a result of meibomian gland dysfunction). To be honest, this was the most painful thing I'd ever experienced.
Anyway, I'd been through almost all the usual treatments both over-the-counter (lubricating drops/gels/ointments etc) and numerous visits to the ophthalmologist who also tried various options including antibiotics (Doxycycline & Azithromycin) and finally wanted to resort to various surgical techniques which I was reluctant to do. So I went and saw a (Wellington-based) optometrist. She suggested trying Optimel Eye Gel and within a few weeks the (almost daily) corneal erosions had stopped and within a month, my dry eye condition had also significantly improved to the point where it's not really an issue
