Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hello
It seems from the history that you had a pink eye following which you are having problems of watering of the eyes. This indicates involvement of cornea resulting in keratoconjunctivitis. This is usually seen in viral infections and treatment is by use of antibiotics, artificial tears and in non responding cases may require steroids.
Hence I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist for examination for confirmation of diagnosis and treatment accordingly.
Thank you
