Hey Question Of The Day; How Many Of You Experience Dry Eye Problems Or Problems With Your Eyes In General? Is This Related To Your Fibro?

I had cataract surgery this past month and I also have dry eyes. Doctor recommended I use Blink lubricating eye drops, can be used two or three times a day. I found relief. Can buy over the counter. Hope it helps.
