Left eye is watering. Diagnosed as pink eye. Medication not helping. Advice?
my left eye has been watering for almost 2 weeks now. i went to urgent care last saturday and they told me i had pink eye (even though there was little redness). ive been on steroids two weeks tomorrow and my left eye continues to water continuously. i thought it might be a blocked tear duct so i tried i hot compress. that hasnt helped. ive been using a homeopathic irritated eye drop , too that doesnt seem to help either. HELP!!!
Watery eye is due to either too many tears being made (infection, inflammation, etc) or obstructed outflow (blocked tear duct, elevated sinus pressure). You should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. Stop using that homeopathic garbage by the way.
