I have developed dry eyes over the past few years. Nothing works for me (thick gel drops from Blink work best, but even those are temporary). But I made an accidental discovery.

You know those kits you can get when you buy a couple of department store cosmetic items from a major manufacturer like Clnique or Estee Lauder? Well, I bought a pricy lipstick several years ago (in a tube with a brush--I have no idea what I was thinking ;-) and my complimentary kit came with a rich, but highly scented eye cream.

I'm currently out of anything I normally use at the corners of my eyes at night (save coconut oil), so I tried the rich eye cream. My eyes find the scent (I assume) irritating and tear like crazy. I haven;t had such moist eyes for well over a decade! Of course, it looks like I'm about to cry, but what price comfort!
