Hey I have had watery eyes for like 3 years and each year it got worse and I'm frustrated because I can't look people in the eyes it mostly happens at school or stores I think it's the air conditioner I wear glasses and it still happens I went to the eye doctor and he told me to use artificial tears but they don't help at all!! I'm so sad and depressed this is ruining my social life I haven't gone out the house in 3 years and school is like hell because of this problem if you could tell me the cure I would love you so much btw I'm 15 thanks

    Oh gosh,you are way too young to be going through this. You sound like you may have dry eye. Some forms of dry eye need more then just eye drops to help,such as compresses,omega 3 fish oil,lid massage and maybe a medication. Ask your eye doctor to examine the upper and lower lids for specifically..gland blockage caused by disfunction of the glands of your lids,specifically ask for him or her to look for Mgd. Over the counter drops can be used to some extent,but if this is the caus,more is needed. You are probably thinking,dry eye,no way,but excessive watering of the eye actually can be a dry eye symptom. They might run tests for tear production,but if you have mgd these tests can be normal. Its the quality of the tears. You have 3 layers to your tear film. The glands in the lids are responsible for the 3rd layer. Oil. Xx

    Hi Brandon, I am also 15 and have the same symptoms, however my eyes do not really water. My main symptom is temporary blurred vision. You can go to a high street optometrist, if they see anything they'll refer you to an eye doctor.
