Sore right eye in corner (tear duct?)

Can anyone help me or give me some advise?
I keep getting this problem with my eye. Only in one, in the tear duct or just right in the inner corner of the eye. It gets really sore and it makes it feel like their is something in my ear (like an eyelash) which causes me to rub it. It then gets even more sore and the white part of my eye seems to look "glazed over". In fact, it kinda gets puffy(the eyeball itself), if I put my finger on my eyelid and move the eyeball, it's like it has a clear layer over the top that moves in a odd way!
I was thinking maybe that is the natural defense of the eyeball if it gets rubbed too much?
But I have tried Visine to no avail, it eventually goes away but then will come back about a week later.

Should I see my normal doctor or do I have to see a specialist??
any ideas of what this is?

Hi, First I would stop using the visine. If you need to put something in there, just go for an artificial tears drop. It will sooth, but not loaded with agrravating chemicals.
Or you can rinse with an eye wash. Keep your fingers out of your eye, unless they are thoroughly clean...and I mean clean. You could introduce bacteria into the eye and cause worse problems. See your regular eye doc, who can check for scratches, infections, etc.
