Resolved Question:

I have been following your directions that you gave me for my eyes to stop being red all the time and for them to stop being watery. They do look better as for as not being red, but they continue to water. What should I do? Should I just continue the regimen of the hot compresses and using Thera Tears and the eye washes?

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

I am glad that your eyes are feeling and looking are on the right track.

Dr. Rick :

I would continue the treatment that you are doing. If, after a couple more weeks, you eye are still watering a lot even though they look less red and feel better I would suggest you see an ophthalmologist for a complete evaluation. It is possible that your tear drainage channels have become clogged due to your prolonged issues.

Dr. Rick :

If this is the case it may be possible to open them back up with a simple office procedure.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
