I asked this very same question a couple of weeks ago. I have a condition where I make very few tears and its very uncomfortable. I use Restasis three times a day and if you can possibly stand them for a while it does get better. I am no longer using the Lotemax. I have tried almost every OTC drop on the market and have found that for me GenTeal drops for the day and the Gel for evenings works great.
Here are some tips that my Dr suggested and they do offer comfort. If you are in a room with blowing heat/air/or circulating fan, protect your eyes with glasses. At night use the eye gel and sleep with a mask. We do not keep our eyes completely closed during sleep and the mask helps maintain the moisture from the gel. I also use a humidifier at night. I take massive doses of Omega 3's, drink tons of filtered water and keep my eyes protected at all times. All of this helps greatly. I hope you will find what works for you.
