    I am the same have to be in really bad pain to take any tabs, just never take them even with the bad knees. If your eyes keep being so dry you can have your tear ducts plugged. I had it done and it works very well. They stay in for years and years. Just stops the eyes drying out as much. Your Optician just does it in his/her rooms. Not painful at all and makes a huge difference, especially for me as we need the aircon on here for about 6 months of a year, day and night. Heaters as well dry out the eyes.

    I do clear the cache out often. Have not changed over to Firefox, probably should.

    I would have liked to wear contact lenses… but unfortunately my eyes are just too dry for that.

    Blue eyes are also the weakest eyes to have, gets irritated far easier than people with darker eyes

  • 57

    The difference is 12 points… less than a minute left to play

  • 59

    Hooper almost over.


  • 60

    Just, just out, it would seem…. no try ruled.

    Game over.

    56 @ grootblousmile:
    Contact lenses will make the eyes even more dry that is for sure. Get the tear ducts plugged as I said. Easy takes just a appointment with your Optician and he/she will put it in in their rooms. Mine have been in since 2005. They eventually do come out then you just have another put in. Takes about 10min to put them in. You will feel the difference, you wont need as much articial tear drops to keep the eyes lubricated.

    I had the Canes not even sure by how much. Think 7 not sure will check.

    @ Puma:

    articial = artifcial

    63 @ Puma:
    I would have thought that the tear ducts blocked would even make the eyes more dry…. well, well… one lives and learns.

    I will investigate that, need to go for new prescription glasses sometime too… and also want to get prescription sports glasses for my squash… not always seeing the ball as clearly as I should in a fast game like that, specially on the other oke’s serve….
