Watery eyes can be a nuisance, but they can also lead to irritation. We need tears to protect and lubricate our eyes. However, excess tearing can be harmful and an indication that a more severe condition is lurking, such as tear duct blockage. When a tear drain is blocked, tears start building up and painful infections can occur. A number of things can cause your eyes to be watery all the time, including floppy eyelid syndrome. That is why you should rely on tear drain expert Dr. Vivian Schiedler to accurately diagnose and come up with a treatment plan.
Tear drains can be treated using medication when the blockage is due to inflammation or allergies. In more severe cases, surgery may be warranted and can be performed by Dr. Schiedler. She can open the drainage and reestablish the regular tear flow. She is a board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon highly skilled at performing lacrimal surgeries and prides herself in achieving natural-looking results and creating discreet incision lines.
