Thanks for writing your query.

It will be helpful if you give more information on:-
1. Whether there is redness in your eyes?
2. Is there any sticky discharge in your eyes?
3. Any history of foreign body like dust or small pebble entering your eyes?
4. Since how long are you having this problem?
5. Any associated cold or running nose?

There are many causes of watering in eyes. Treatment can be planned according to your reply to above mentioned queries.

In the meantime keep your eyes clean by washing them with clean water two to three times a day.

Awaiting your reply...

Thanks for your response.

After reading your reply, it seems that watering in your eyes are due to excessive hours spent in front of your computer resulting in eye strain and wekness in eye muscles. You should give rest to your eyes in between. Every 20 minutes, look to a distance of around 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Also blink your eyes in between as while working on computer, frequency of blinking decreases naturally.

You should consult an Ophthalmologist and get your refraction done. Also you should use anti-glare glasses/eye protection screen while working on computers.

You should learn exercises to strengthen the muscles of your eye ball from your ophthalmologist.

I hope this answers your query. If you have any furthur doubts, I will be happy to answer them.

Than Q somuch Doctor,

plz. tell any eye drops this prablem.....
Answered by Dr. R.A. Singh 5 hours later

You are always welcome to post your queries.

As I have already mentioned watering in your eyes is not due to any infection or allergic condition but it is due to eye strain. So, eye drops have no role in preventing watering of eyes due to computer strain.

You should rather get your vision checked (Refraction) by an ophthalmologist (Eye specialist) and take precautions as mentioned before.

I hope this answers your query.

Hi my 5 year old boy gets very tired all of a sudden, he goes quite pale and quite often complains of sore eyes which I think could be a headache behind his eyes. We have had his eyes tested for eye strain etc. Sometimes he also says he has a sore tummy but never throws up. This happens sometimes a couple of days a week or not for several weeks. In between he seems a normal happy pre-schooler. Thanks
