I think... well, hmm I believe I have an eye lash growing inside of my right eye! I even saw that eyelash/hair.. I was too afraid to take it out (OUCH!) so I went in to see an optometrist.

He really did not explain to me why I have this hair inside of my eyes! He said he could not see it! Even worse? He made fun of me and talked to me with a strict tone almost ALMOST saying that I was imagining things!!! HOW DARE HE! He was actualy rude saying his equipments are way better than me and that there was NOTHING in my eye!!!! I was angry LOL! I swear its there... my sister saw it! My cousin and my friend too. Well, anyhow... back to the subject, the doctor performed a Tear Break Up Time (TUBT) test. Basically, he inserted some sort of thin little fluorescent dye/paper into my eyes to observe the tear layer of both eyes. He explained that test help determine how long it takes for tears to break up on the front of the eye after your blink. My tears dry out in a second or less! He told me I have DRY eyes because the sooner the tears dissipate the dryer your eyes are. A normal TBUT is 15 seconds. If my TUBT was seven or six seconds I have to blink twice as much... but with my one second I guess I have to close my eyes all the time and sleep... skip work for that matter LOL!

Thankfully! I do not have to live with blinking every second! I am using Tears Naturale Free drops to moisten my eyes! Artificial tears so to speak! So I am literally carrying tears in my purse all the time! Don't agitate me or else I will cry... artificially or not! Still... I have tears on the go! :-P

I do drink lots of water daily, but I also have to consider few things, such as avoiding to stay infront of the computer for long hours, which is kinda hard in my case considering my job and all... also, when turning on the A/C in the car, I should not let the air hit my eyes directly!
