My sons right eye waters all the time!

I was wondering if any one else had problems with one of your eyes watering all the time. His eye isnt red or sore... and there is no puss or anything... just clear tears coming out of his one eye. Any suggestions of what this might be? We have an appointment in April with an eye doctor. Thanks for your time.

Yes, quite possibly his tear duct is clogged. I know that sounds weird but tearing is the symptom of a clogged tear duct. Very easy to remedy. Just take him to the eye doc. All they have to do is examine it to verify, then use a simple tool to unclog it. Very easy and there is no discomfort. That's all! Then it should be over and his eye will stop tearing.

Could he still have a blocked tear duct even at the age of 5? I mean my doctor thought it probably was that... but I thought 5 was kind of old. Thanks

Re: My sons right eye waters all the time!

It was very simple. The phys. examined my eye and informed me that I had a blocked tear duct. He explained that he would need to unclog it by using an instrument. It resembled a big paper clip that someone bent into a hooked shape. He told me to hold still while he poked the instrument into the corner of my eye. There was absolutely no discomfort at all. Because I was pregnant at the time, there was no administration of any sedatives or medications and it was absolutely unnecessary---so I don't know that medications would be given in any event. The procedure was so quick---the bat of an eye--and it was all over. He told me I would experience fluid running down my sinuses, and I did. That was all! It was simple and easy and your little boy should have no difficulty with the procedure! This was done by an EYE Doc at an HMO. There was instant relief and I've had no problems with my tear duct since then!

The sooner he is seen and has this remedied, the sooner he will feel better, and the tearing will stop! Hope all goes well! Let me know how it goes!

Hi Nicole! Yes, it truly is a simple procedure and instant relief! Just let him know to sit real still for the doc to do the procedure that is absolutely painless and very, very quick! Keep me posted. Hope the little guy is okay!
