    Recurrent Corneal Erosion

    I got poked in the eye with a wire a couple years ago. Since then, it wouldn't take much to irritate my eye again. I use gel drops at night, and artificial tears in the morning. I've gotten good at not rubbing my eye when it itches, etc, because that would often prompt intolerable irritation for hours. Another easy cause was laying face down in a massage table. This is the worst one, because getting treated fro one pain, causes another. I need advice on how to prevent this from happening when I go get massages, because it is quite bothersome, especially when driving home.

    RE: Recurrent Corneal Erosion

    I can speak to this. I had it to the point I would wake up with my lids sticking to my eye balls. I had debridement on one eye. It helped, but remember it is tissue so it does not grow back perfectly. I always have to make sure my lids are not sticking to my lids and when I get my exams I always have my cornea mapped to make sure it hasnt changed. Quick history, I had familial cataracts and implants when I was a young adult.
    OTC Goops seem to work as good as all of the RX's out there.
