Question

 

 

Hi,

I'm the child, I am writing on behalf of my father. His eyes cry all the time specially on windy days.

In the morning he has to clean his eyes from discharge. He tried a lot of doctors in his country nothing seems to work.

What kind of eye drops would you recommend?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

I think you have to follow up with an eye doctor and ask him if your father has either dry eyes or nasolacrimal duct obstruction or both. These diseases causes excessive tearing and lacrimation but the treatment are different

Dry eyes can be treated with lubricant eye drops such as systane eye drops while nasolacrimal duct obstruction requires surgical treatment.
