Try something with a high viscosity -- that helps.

Thx, I will ask a pharmacist about high viscosity eye drops (you'd think just one of the optometrists I've seen over the years might've mentioned that?). Thank you for addressing this issue!!

Do you have troubles with your eyes drying out a night?

Yes! When I wake up, it's the worst, although my eyes tend to be dry pretty much all the time.

Wear an athletic headband over your eyes. It's cheap, washable, and readily available. If you have have windy or low humidity days, dampen the portion over your eyes.

Wonderful suggestion. I will try, but it's unlikely for me. I've tried sleeping with an eye mask (becasue I've gotten more sensitive to falling asleep with the least bit of light in the room)--like the eye mask they give you in first or business class on a red eye--but they seem to press on my eyeballs and drive me crazy. My husband, however, loves them, and wears them these days when I read in bed when he's trying to sleep (this sensitivity to light at night is a new development for him as well). Geez, I've become like the princess and the pea--getting old sux! (I know, what's the alternative, right?!)
