Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Both eyes are affected
Eyes examined about 6 months ago and 18 months before that. No abnormalities found.
No seasonal allergies that I am aware of. I at first thought it might be an allergic reaction but anti-histamines were not effective and climatic conditions seem to be the main factor.
Thank you Dr James for your very helpful reply to my original question but I have another question which I would like to direct to you rather than to another consultant hence this reply. I have another £8 credit which I hope can be used to cover this further question.
Do you think, as seems to be implied by your answers, that an excessive clear watery mucoid discharge that requires almost continuous nose-blowing when walking, hiking and playing golf can also be explained by my watery eyes even though I do not suffer from any nasal drainage when experiencing watery eyes in other situations. Could there be some sympathetic irritation of the nasal mucous membranes in response to these specific activities and is there any simple remedy for this annoying symptom?
