Dry eye pain can feel like lots of different things. If you are not sure you are fully convinced by the doctor's examination and explanation, you should consider a second opinion. Be sure to see an Eye MD. You can find one near you at www.aao.org.
Im not a doctor, but i too have been told i have dry eye, i have pain around the top of my eye, hard to describe what type of pain it is really. But its very annoying!!!!
What drops are you using? Did you see a proper eye doctor, i am still waiting to see one.
Hope you get a positive answer .
My pain is more under the eye than over. I saw a regular eye doctor. I just wish I knew if that type of pain is typical of dry eye/eye strain.
i do know that pain caused by dry eye can be bad... eye strain when i had that i just got headaches... maybe see how it goes with the drops... what drops are you using?
