Watering eyes

Have any forum members ever suffered from excessive watering eyes - I mean to the point that it is as if you are crying with tears pouring down your cheeks? It is just mainly my left eye - also eyelids are a little red and swollen eyes are sticky in the morning?

Re: Watering eyes

I had the same problem 4 weeks ago, couldn't stop it whatever I did. Went to see the Ophthalmologist at the Yucelen in Mugla.
Full examination and he told me my tear ducts were blocked, he flushed them through with a syringe,they immediately stopped watering, gave me a prescription for some eye drops and no problem since.
Could be the same problem, it's worth having your eyes checked.

Re: Watering eyes

Sounds like getting professional advice is the way to go but in the mean time try bathing your eye with a cooled down tea bag ,sounds strange but has worked for me in the past and wont do you any harm.

Re: Watering eyes

Hi Helen, on occasions my eyes will water, (excessively), feel desperately strained, sore and under pressure, my problem is actually dry eyes and I use artificial tears on prescription for the doctor which relieves them no end. It seems to be fine for a while and then flares up. If you have the time or opportunity please visit an optician they are better to be honest to advise on eye related issues than your GP, my doc is happy to prescribe the tears on the basis that the optician identified the need.

Re: Watering eyes

You are suffering from dry eyes. You are not lubricating your eyes often enough so the body's mechanism starts your eyes to water to combat this.
I use artificial tears to lubricate my eyes. I use Visco Tears it is a gel applied by dropping a small amount into the eyes, it is very soothing and gives relief for 3 to 4 hours before needing re application. The worst time for me is in winter when driving when you need the blowers on to keep the screen clear. Also when I was working using a computer for quite a lot of hours a day that caused me to have dry eyes ( apparently we don't blink as much when concentrating on a computer screen ) .

Re: Watering eyes

thanks everyone - last night before going to bed I carefully washed my face and around the eyes and splashed lots of water into them which made them feel more comfortable for a while but this morning the same - eyes are full of water - sounds as if its either dry eye syndrome or trapped tear ducts (have noticed a little swelling to the corner of the nose next to the tear trough on my left eye which is the worst one) - hadn't realised you could go to an optician about it rather than a doctor - will try visco tears first and if that doesn't help will make an appointment ........ thanks again, Helen

Re: Watering eyes

Hi Helen I suffered for 12 months, after lots of different drops Viscotears for night time, and some Hypromellose drops for during the day, I was diagnosed with Blepharitis, along with excessive watering they were swollen, inflamed and itchy.The best solution for me is Morning and Evening I put a couple of drops of ''Simple'' face wash between my fingers and, with eyes closed, rub in the solution gently and rinse with tepid water. After only a couple of days they were almost normal and, now I don't have a problem, but, I use this every day.
Blepharitis is a bacteria that gets into your eye lashes and is the cause of this.
I am not saying you have this problem but, give it a try. I don't use any drops either now. Good Luck, it made me so miserable, and uncomfortable.

Re: Watering eyes

I do have some crustiness in my lower eyelashes on the worst eye so it sounds likely it is the same thank you for the tip x
