Continued itching after cataract surgery

I had a second cataract surgery about 6 mo. ago.  I have been to surgeon several times about continued itching, glare, and eye pain. He tells me it is just dry eye.  I have had a second set of eye plugs put in.  I continue to use artificial tears.  But the problems continue.  What can be done to relieve problem?  Do I need a second opinion?

1. Use the archives and search feature to read about dry eyes.
2. Go to Dr. Hagan's blog and read the article on dry eye.
3. The definitive treatment for dry eyes is Restasis.
