Brief Answer:
Anti-inflammatory eye drops needed

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

As you have already been tested for dry eye and found negative, the Systame and lubricants have a limited role.

There can be a very small inflammation in the eye, causing this problem. In our practice we use steroid eye drops similar to what you used just after surgery, they will reduce watering and burning and thereby reduce watering.

Any further query in this regard, please do get back to me.
