Dry eye sticking to back of eye lid

I have dry eyes and have been experiencing them sticking to the back of my eyelids. Anyone else have this problem? What have you found helps you?

I have dry eye too. I use Theratears eyedrops several times a day. There are lots of brands out there, some thicker than others. Some people have had success with tear duct plugs, but i didn't. Restasis also didn't work for me. I keep eyedrops on my bedside table for when i wake up with my eyes all scratchy in the middle of the night. And i keep a bottle in my handbag.

I had that problem as well before I got tear duct plugs (which have worked really well for me). My eye surgeon suggested gel tears at night which is thicker and seemed to stop the problem. Now I just use natural tear drops during the day. Hope this helps.

The best treatment for me has been Muro eye ointment which was prescribed by the opthalmologist.
It can be purchased at the drug store and it usually is behind the counter, not displayed with all the other eye drops etc.
Drops have not been much use.Feel better soon

Thank you everyone for your post. I have tear duct plugs and am on Restasis. I was told to use the gel ointment at night. Use preservative free eye drops as much as I need to and use the preservative eye drops no more than four times a day. The doc also said to put warm washclothes over my eyes four times a day. She also said to use the covers to put over your eyes at night. (Can't think of what they're called.)
