A few years ago I developed what is now known as "Rebound Hypermia". For those who dont know what it is, it is basically an addiction to redness reliever eye drops. If I do not use the drops, my eyes are very bloodshot until I do use them. Along with my eyes being red all the time, they also get VERY dry and they burn after I put the drops in.
My question is, what is the cure for this addiction? I cannot stop using them cold turkey, because they are at their reddest/dryest when I am at work, and I do not want ppl at work to see me without using my eye drops. I have seen several doctors who have told me the only thing I COULD do was to stop cold turkey, and then gave me some lubricant eye drops for the dryness (which do nothing for me)
I have tried stopping cold turkey, but it took WEEKS before the redness calmed down even a little bit. Since I have been using redness releiver drops for years now, will my eyes ever return to normal?
Here are things I have tried for my condition:
All types of OTC lubricant drops (no help)
Restasis (No help)
Punctal Plugs (No help)
Stopping cold turkey (Helped a LITTLE BIT but took many many weeks before noticing any difference)
