Nice to see some more dry eye coverage in the general press... and also nice to hear about another doctor spending a lot of time on dry eye:
"I would get blurry vision and my eyes were puffy," said Pochick, 49. "My eyes hurt all the time, and I couldn't even go out for a walk because the wind would make things worse. I used two to three small vials a day of artificial tears to keep my eyes moist. I was resigned to staying like this."
Then Pochick met the wife of Dr. Bill Davitt III, an expert on dry eye, and she recommended that Pochick see him.
I only wish dry eye relief were as simple for all of us as it sounds like it was for Nina:
"They plugged my eye tear ducts and the pain stopped," Pochick said. "And I use only half the drops I used before to keep my eyes moist."
