New dry eye stories

Find connection and inspiration on, edited by Aidan Moore.

Living with Dry Eye; No Cure

Meet JAH1973. "I am by no means healed, but things are manageable.  After years of pain, misery, depression and potentially losing everything professionally and mentally, somehow I made it."

Her telegraph-format story of what works, what she does and what she doesn't will resonate with many of you.

Adapting to a New Life

Read Jewell's account of how her eye situation escalated from minor symptoms to recurrent corneal erosions, then severe and constant burning. How that turned her life upside down and took her to a dark place. And how she began the path to solutions.

Jewell has some terrifically practical take-home messages. Outdoor-loving folks with dry eye will be especially appreciative of her powerfully written story.

The Amazon-esque "also bought" feature

You know the ubiquitous "Customers who bought this item also bought..." type displays?

Well, we used to have a product suggestions thing on our site and I hated it. It was hard to make it work, I didn't like how it looked, I never had time to update it and I always felt it was kind of pointless. So I was looking for something easier to maintain and I found this one. We tried it and and I'm now hooked! I find it really fascinating to see which things people "also bought". (Shows you how much sales analysis I don't do, I suppose.) For example, I had no idea so many people buy at least two different types of lid scrubs. Anyway, I found it educational, and I hope you like it too. Just scroll down on any product page to find what purchasers of that product have "also bought"

Eyelid care

Single-eye heat packs

Have you ever wanted to apply a warm compress on just one eye at a time, so you could keep reading... but didn't have a convenient way to do it?

Try Eye Eco's Stye Kits. They're basically half of a Tranquileyes. The basic Stye Kits have been around a long time (well-kept secret!) but now they are offering them with their popular tea tree cleansing foam *and* you can get the stye kits in extra large, for better coverage.

PROSE & Scleral lens supplies

LacriPure and Unique pH

LacriPure and Unique pH 4oz size are both available now direct from Menicon. They're only selling to patients so far, so we can't get any, but we are hoping and expecting to be able to get fully stocked on both products by the end of April. 

PROSE cases: The last mile

We know it was intensely frustrating for everyone waiting on PROSE cases all this time without knowing when they might be available again.

Read my blog if you're interested in hearing what it was like from our side of this saga.

Dry Eye Glasses

They're back

We've started adding popular dry eye glasses & goggles back to the shop! And don't look now, but I've done fresh videos for some of these!

They may look funny and feel clunky, but if you're in pain, protection helps.

Notes from Rebecca

Trying to rush this newsletter out today... my CEO support group is showing up in just a little while and I have to go pick up the pizzas. But if you still have appetite for more reading, there's always the latest installment of:

Diary of a dry eye shop

...including the NKCF event on Saturday in Houston which I greatly enjoyed!
