I went to the opthamologist last week because of a watery left eye and tenderness next to the inside of my eye i.e. beside my nose, that didn't respond to antihistamine or regular use of artificial tears. Turns out I had an inflamed tear duct that wasn't draining properly. He kind of prised it a bit open and flushed it, but after just a few days it's watering like it was before.
Does anyone have any advice about what I should do, whether I should go back to the opthamologist or whether I should just put up with it? It's a relatively minor annoyance compared to the pain I'm having from the AS etc.
