I have been referred to a consultant for what my GP considers to be the correct diagnosis. I have been treated for conjunctivitis since January 2017. That has cleared. However, the upper tear duct is enlarged and from time to time the eye will water, but not significantly. I have so many different medications that th eye is irritated and bloodshot. I have been advised to used hot compresses, cold compresses, drops for dy eyes and so on. That eye has always been sensitive and first thing in the morning feels sore and "gritty." It clears after about theirty minutes.
I have done some reserch into the condition, and they talk about surgery or removing the eye....! Seems a little extreme for a tear duct/lacrimal sac problem.
Has anyone on the Forum had experience of this or any knowledge. I have been told that I can expect to wait 4 1/2 months to see a consultant!
