Doc, I am guilty as charged in respect to vigorously rubbing my itchy eyes. A practice i would say is due to my allergies. During the allergy season, my eyes tend to itch so much so that, i sometimes have to place damp towels on them for relief. Eye ointments and drops prescribed by my doctor only help temporarily. I was was told the condition was due to the lack of tear production, what would you say is or will be a lasting solution to this problem ?
