(Blepharoplasty with obstructed vision)
(Floppy Eyelid Syndrome)
Any time the eye is irritated it will tear, even when the eyes are excessively dry. Chronic irritation is painful and it requires a visit to the eye doctor. In fact any tearing which does not respond to over the counter drops should be evaluated. A tear duct may be blocked which means tears cannot drain, so tears drip down the face. Often the irritation and tearing is caused by loose eyelids. See Dr. Lemke for evaluation and treatment plan.
