Question: teary eyes
|feather - Fri Dec 19, 2003 11:48 pm|
My eyes get teary so easily when I start to laugh, even a soft laugh. I've had this for a few years now. I went to see an eye doctor. He said my eyes were OK. What should I do?

Does it Itch in your eyes? Do you have dandruff? Some people do have watery eyes often without any cause. If it is of not much significance you might want to try putting it in the ignore mode.

ideally u need to do a procedure called sac syringing after visiting an ophthalmologist..in which they push a liquid in lower punctum(punctum-hole in inner corner of lower lid)...u feel that liquid in your throat....this confirms the duct carrying tears from eye to nose is patent......
if ducts of both eyes are normal, tears are just due to overproduction as a result of autonomic overactivity which is related with emotions and tear productions. u need not worry in this case.
