Stroke and dry eyes

It has been seven months since my ischemic stroke. My balance has significantly improved however my right eye is always in pain. My eye doctor has diagnosed me with Dry Eyes. I am two months into Restasis with uncertain results. My question is has anyone done the ILP procedure? Intense Pulsed Light. Does it work? Effective in producing tears?
