Like most dry eye medications I've used (like Restasis), I've just added Lacriserts to a long list of medications that SIMPLY DON'T WORK. Sticking these things into your eyes is easy if you don't use the ridiculous "insertion device" they supply with them... I used used my clean fingers to drop them in.

I have sjorgens and I don't know what I would do without lacriserts. They are the only things that work. I am able to live a normal life with them. I have had my ducts plugged and even my own blood drawn to make a serum to put back in my eyes. Nothing works except lacriserts. I am so thankful for them.

Lacriserts have given me back my life. Before I used them, I was in too much pain to read or use a computer. I wore dark goggle almost all day. I still wear dark glasses at time now, but I am so much better with Lacriserts.
