: I have very watery eyes, that often itch and hurt, no doc has really helped, it really driving me crazy, I am the one who has declared this condtion as allergy related, any suggestions?
Allergies is always a possibility and so is a sensitvity to certain types of lights. Consider getting tested for allergies if you haven't already been tested. In the mean time consider seeing an eye specialist called an opthamologist as you could possiblly have one oof several eye conditions such as blepharitis. Another thing to consider is you have any red areas on your face or what is called adult acne that could be a sign of rosacea. Your eye condition could very well be part of that if this is the case. In the meantime wash your eyelids with dilute baby shampoo and clean wash cloth or cotton ball once or twice a day. Try using Vasacon A eye drops several times a day if you haven't tried these. Above all don't touch you eyes with your bare hands with out washing them first. Good luck
