Warm Compress on Eyes

I began applying a warm compress to my eyes five or six times each day, followed by over-the-counter eye drops without preservatives. Avoiding preservatives is important because, as the ophthalmologist told me, after a while the preservatives start to have a negative impact. Although the eye regime is a chore and negatively impacts quality of life, my eyes now feel fine.
