What's drying out your eyes?

As a Florida plastic surgeon,  one of my favorite operations is an upper eyelid Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift.

The most common complication following a Blepharoplasty is dry eyes.   

There are several herbal products associated with dry eyes.  One is Niacin or vitamin B3.  Others include Echinacea, kava and anti-cholinergic alkaloids.  I have requested all my patients to stop ALL herbal supplements.  

Keeping things simple is the best.
