Customer Question
I have a short...

I have a short shooting pain around the tear duct of my left eye. It comes and goes about once an hour for about 10 sec each time. My eyes are not watering. At first I thought I had something in my eye but it doesn't appear so. Not sure what it is and what to do about it

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It woke me up a few times in the middle of the night last night. There is nothing particular that aggravates this. It just comes and goes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing in particular. I never had any issues with my eyes

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it sounds Dacrocystitis is inflammation of the tear sac.

And now you should take some self care measures like

Take OTC Motrin and Claritin.

Also try OTC Zaditor eye drops 1-2 times alternately with Systane eye drops 2-4 times a day.

You should apply warm compresses on affected area with warm water cloth.

If your symptoms'll persist or get worse over the time then see your Ophthalmologist for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
