Have you ever tryed drops? I have to use them now because I am apparently at risk for glaucoma. And that is causing me similar issues that you are having. I hate trying to put them in though.

I hate my car, I have repaired 3 of my 4 tires 2 times each because they have a slow leak. I have fixed my front driver side tire 4 times because it always sucks and then yesterday it decided that it would full blown leak and the tire went flat when I'm supposed to pick up my parents from the airport. Luckly my parents have 2 cars so I was able to borrow theirs (one is a truck and wouldn't hold us all). I am now borrowing their car until my darned tire can be fixed. There goes another couple hundred bucks out of my pocket.

Blech, my shoulder hurts. I am too short to clean my 20 gallon high. I think that tank may be my husbands responsibility if getting a longer syphon doesn't help. I have to stand on my toes to syphon it.

Get a mini step stool or something sturdy to stand on. You won't have to strain yourself as much.

I have no problems with height and water changes but carrying the weight is tuff and hurts my back.

I don't have any Visine or lubricating drops unfortunately. I think cool cloths help a little and just resting my eyes even if I don't sleep.

I have a little one but I need a new one that isn't so hard to stand on. The one I have wobbles . I think my main issue is I need to invest in a longer syphon. I worry about standing on a stool because I have ghost shrimp in there. I am afraid I am going to suck them up or something. I think this weekend I am making a trip to the pet store.
