Hi. I was diagnosed as hypothyroid about two years ago (though I suspect I have had it for many years) and was prescribed Levothyroxine. I have had watery eyes for about 30 years, but recently it has become much worse - so much so that I was recently referred to the local Eye Hospital. I was told that my tear ducts were partially blocked, and an horrendous operation was recommended. I am extremely reluctant to undergo this operation and have been looking into alternatives. During this time, I have started to wonder if my watery eyes and blocked ducts are connected with my hypothroidism. By watery, I mean my eyes pour with tears when I am outside, to the extent that I am blinded by them, with the added result that my eyes become sore. I just wondered if any other hypothyroid people had experienced the same problem??
