This page is a jumble. Please don't use it. Just a store house for my research.
This information is kept "as is" for my future reference (in case I ever need it). It was part of the extensive research I conducted before finalising the diagnosis and the cure. It is not of much use. Ignore it. Just stick to the cure I've suggested. If you are particularly keen to learn the cause, then read the detailed history.
Don't use the material below. It is just for my records:
Cause – most likely (now)- tear reduction and static load on small eyelid muscles. Possible involvement of muscles in the ciliary body.
Increase blood flow
– Increased water intake to increase blood flow
– Headstand/ "downward facing dog" yoga postures
– massage the eye muscles as much as possible (don't be too soft! – the body can take a good amount of punishment) – NOT a very good idea although it does help increase blood flow.
– DO NOT READ AND WRITE – to give the muscles some time to recover
Stretch the muscles
– Eye exercises to stretch the eye muscles
– Look into the distance as much as possible.
– Play tennis to allow for rapid eye movement, instead of static load.
– If dry eye is the cause, then Restasis may be needed (prescription only)

Take one dose and wait for a response. If improvement is seen, continue to wait and let the remedy work. If improvement lags significantly or has clearly stopped, another dose may be taken. The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient. If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different remedy.

JUMBLE OF REFERENCES – DO NOT USE
Let me make note of this important article at the outset.
Lacrimal gland, tear film, and dry eye syndromes 3: basic science and clinical relevance, Volume 506, Part 2.
Most people with dry eye syndrome also have blepharitis, inflammation of the rims of the eyelids. Blepharitis is commonly associated with:
seborrhoeic dermatitis, a common skin condition that is often referred to as seborrhoeic eczema, and
rosacea, a less common inflammatory skin condition that affects the face.
Some over-the-counter eye drops contain benzalkonium chloride, a preservative that can dry out eyes and have other side effects. (This includes BION TEARS Alcon OTC and Revital eyes: (MURINE)
