Can you recommend an eye drop?
But I haven't bought any eye drop products since I came to Canada.
What do Canadians usually buy to lubricate their eyes?

Are your eyes also itchy, tingling, specifically at the corners?? You may have eye allergies or conjunctivitis. Both conditions can cause dry itchy, twitchy eyelids as well. Systane is the common OTC solution for very minor symptoms. For prescription versions which fights chronic allergies, itchiness, dryness, bacteria.. ask your doc to prescribe Alomide or equivalents.

My Ophthalmologist prescribed Xiidra (Lifitegrast ophthalmic solution 5%). If you've had laser eye surgery and cataract surgery, then this is a very effective treatment against dry eyes.

I was told to use this and it’s awesome. Hylo is more expensive. Hyabak is cheaper from a local place. It’s made in FranceDealmaker1945 wrote: ↑For dry eyes, the best are the ones containing Sodium Hyaluronate. These were a game changer for me after trying every type of drop on the market for a severe condition.
I used to get them from Europe but they are now available here. The brand names are:
Hylo (ask at the Pharmacy counter in Shoppers, or Costco)
Thealoz Duo or Hyabak (some Optometrists) - I think " Thealoz Duo" is the very best.
Hydrasense on the shelf at Shoppers (cheapest)
You can also get some of these on Amazon.

Been using Xiidra for going on 2 months and it's made a difference! My eyes no longer feel gritty and irritated at the end of a work day of staring at the computer. It just boggles my mind how expensive it is however.
