Watery eyes (epiphora): What helps?
Watery eyes (epiphora) tear persistently or excessively is a condition affecting my health. My eye physician believes that my eyes are excessively dry and prescribed Restasis eye drops. These eye drops do not help at all. This month I was examined by a doctor that specializes in watery eyes. He prescribed Espinastine HCI Ophthalmic Solution, (0.05%). The tearing was reduced by around 20-25%. I have an appointment with this specialist today. However, I do not believe that eyes drops is the solution to my conditions. I am 72 year old, active around the home and garden. I walk and exercise 2-3 times per week. I am a retired US Marine physically fit. I take high blood pressure medicine.
