Well okay, I exaggerated a bit. But today I went to my eye doctor for my forth visit about my always-dry left eye, and again like the first time I went he gave me the dreaded 'dry eye' test. It's so uncomfortable! They start by telling you they're going to put drops in your eyes that will make your eyes hurt, and thus make you cry. And then if that's not bad enough they get paper strips and hang them over your bottom eyelids. Not pleasant.

If you look closely you can see that my left eye has released 16mm of tears, whereas my right eye is at 34mm; more than double! But on my first visit a few months ago my left eye produced even less, so at least it seems slightly better than it was. And certainly my left eye hasn't been quite so dry throughout the day recently.
