I am a 67-yesr-old woman. My left eye has been watering for over a month and I have very blurry vision in that eye, There is no redness, swelling or other discomfort. The watering is intermittent, but when it does, it's a waterfall. I finally want to an ophthalmologist. His staff did some tests and after all that he said to put warm packs on my eye for 5 minutes every morning, then gently massage the eyelid. He also gave me some Systane drops - one drop in the morning. It's been a week now and I have not seen any improvement. When I called his office, I get an answering machine and so far no one has returned my call. I wanted to know how long until I can expect relief with this conservative treatment.
