Customer Question

I woke up with an extremely watery eye and kept wiping it. My eye sight seems a bit out of focus in that eye which is the left. No double vision, just blurry when I look at letters. My lower eye lid and inner corner of my eye feels thick and it's twitchy. I also woke up with a headache across my frontal.

Sorry I actually work in radiology at a hospital. Let me try to take a pic. There's no abnormality in my eye and it's relatively dry now.

Looks okay to me now

Do you have allergies?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No allergies. My vision has gradually gotten better. Still have a headache so I'm guessing it was all sinus pressure related. It just had me worried to wake up with blurry vision in one eye.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 month ago.

yes, I agree.

It could be a sinus infection

when there is eye involvement I always use antibiotics

I would go to urgent care for a quick check

or employee health at the hospital
