How to handle eye irritation?

I'm about 5 months post op retro-sigmoid.  I've had some good facial nerve recovery on the right side of my face.  There is some good movement around the mouth, cheek, and eyebrow on the affected (right) side.  The eyelid looks like it is just about closing now.
There has been some significant eye irritation lately.  After surgery I had trouble taping my eye shut at night, so they said it was OK to use Refresh Plus and wear the moisture dome overnight. I've been (succesfully) taping my eye shut overnight for the past week and switched to Systane for the night time ointment. It's helped some, but my eye is getting more bloodshot and the eye on the unaffected side is starting to get dry overnight too. 
Thanks very much for any suggestions..
