Yes, Dr. Wobig told me the same thing that Laura mentioned. As there is no way of knowing how long the benefits of the surgery will last, my doctor said that often when people start having the surgery performed, they end up being committed to having surgery on their eys throughout their lifetime. He too stressed that if you can take care of your eyes and avoid surgery, it's the best way to go.

I never thought of trying wet gauze. I'll have to do that. Thanks for the tip!
