Avatar_n_tn I wear contacts but have not worn them in almost a week, instead I wear my glasses.

Avatar_n_tn Lastly ask the external disease specialist about te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct plugs for several months.

Keep working you may not be able an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> be cured but you likely can be helped.
Avatar_m_tn I had DCR surgery in 2007 for a blocked te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct. I've had problems with my eye ever since included severe dryness. It's wrong an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>fer DCR as the first choice when clearly less invasive and more 'ideal' choices are available such as balloon dilatation.
Avatar_n_tn I suggest you see an Eye MD an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>morrow (find one at www.aao.org ) as it could be an infected eyelid or te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct.
Avatar_f_tn My left eye is very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and it appears an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> be a blocked te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duck, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever I have been an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> see two Opthamologist, eye docan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>r, and allergy docan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>r, and General Medicine docan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>r. No one has been able an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> figure this one out. It is at its worse i the Morning when I wake up. The eye lid is full an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> fluid, which looks like my tears . It drains slowly throughout the day and fills back up over night. I've taken antibiotics, Steroid drops, ointments . Nothing has worked.
Avatar_f_tn You probably have a chalazion which is a blocked and infected oil gland in the lid. Start placing hot packs on the eye twice a day. Use very warm tap water in a large bowl. Soak a washcloth in it, wring it out and place it on your eye. after 2 or 3 minutes, re-dip the washcloth and place it again on the eye. Continue this for 10 minutes each time. You may need some oral antibiotics as well. See an ophthalmologist before it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>getan>s out an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> hand. Some an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> these need surgical drainage.
Avatar_f_tn Therefore, the problem does not involve the eyeball but involves the tissues surrounding the eye. Your dog may have a congenital problem involving her te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct or the glands in her eyelids, or her third eyelid. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> set your mind at ease you can ask your vet an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> refer your dog an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> a veterinary opthalmologist. The opthalmologist has the proper equipment an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> test for eye problems beyond the scope an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> non-specialized veterinarians.
Avatar_n_tn There are several reasons that an eyelid won't open that are quite serious. On the other hand simple vitamin B-12 deficiency can cause this problem. It won't hurt an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> try sublingual B-12 with folic acid (double dose) for a few days. If this is the cause it should clear within two weeks.
Avatar_n_tn I had not changed my contacts in a while so thought they might be irritating it, or I possibly had a blocked te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct (not sure what that looks like though). This morning, the swelling had gone down, or at least it had spread out an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> more under the eye and was less noticable, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever the other eye has some swelling now. This is on my eyelid, and it looks almost like I was punched in the eye (Rocky style). Both places are painless, san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>t, and seem an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> simply be fluid buildup.
Avatar_n_tn I don't care about my forehead and cheeks. I am very concern about my eyes. My te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct on my left eye is very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. By the way, I am a 32 female.

Avatar_n_tn Improvement an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>ten continues for up an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> 6 months. If you have tried te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct plugs you should have had all for te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct openings (puncta) plugged with a permanent plus (not a disolving one). Usually just the lower lids are done with mild dry eyes. If your problem is as bad as you say, you and your ophthalmologist should discuss permanent closure an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> some or all four an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the tear duct openings with cautery.
Avatar_n_tn Gradually in two days it was back an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> normal. It would start swelling in the upper eyelid right at the te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct next an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> my nose. This would happen about 5-7 times, then it would swell up very bad so I could hardly see and had an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> strain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> do that, after that extreme swelling it san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>pped for several years. Then like it started, it began all over again a few years later. I went through this cycle all over again in the early 90's. My last cycle an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> this was in 1993.
Avatar_n_tn My right eye has been crying for two days now.. the eyelid is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> presumably from the water, but otherwise it looks fine. Can you suggest why this is or any treatment? Thank you.
Avatar_n_tn I admit it is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>tally my fault I have this problem. The eyelid and area above have been red and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> for four days. I would have thought the redness and swelling would be gone by now, but it is still there. Is there anything I can do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> reduce the swelling and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>getan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ridan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the redness? Thank you.
Avatar_n_tn It starts an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> swell around the te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct part an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the eye and then spreads down underneath and over the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>p eyelid. I can usually tell when it is coming. That sinus feels clogged, and it itches mildly for a week in advance. It usually lasts about 24 hours, and it does not affect my vision. I went an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> an allergist who said it looks like an allergy, but he couldnt say an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> what, and none an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the eye drops he gave me helped.
1303966_tn?1296743610 He has bloody looking spots, one small and one larger near his te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct. Should I worry about this? He said it was painful and hard an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> see for about an hour or so after an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>getan>ting hit. His eyelid was swollen and now a little bruised.
Avatar_n_tn when the swelling occurs, my 'eye ball' as such is fine, looks white and completely normal, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever the area below my eye, my eyelid, and the area between my eye and nose is very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>, most an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the time so much so that my eye opening is little more than a slit. i have had my tear duct checked and it appears fine, and have been allergy tested which has come back with nothing! the swelling usually lasts for approx 2 days at its worst, and slowly goes down after 4 days.
Avatar_f_tn If on your eyelid it could be the eyelid puncta or opening an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct (one on upper and one on lower) If its on the side an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>wards the ear can't an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>fer any useful information. Use a search engine and pull up pictures an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the "lacrimal caruncle" and see if that is what you're noticing.
Avatar_n_tn about a month ago in my left eye, I had either a stye or blocked te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct possibly as evidenced by a bruised dark red mark under my eye on the outside an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> my bottan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>m eyelid. May have nothing an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> with the price an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> tea in China but thought I would mention it. Thanks for the help!
Avatar_f_tn Late Thursday night the lower lid, inner corner an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> one eye got a little swollen, red, and tender - right in the area an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct. Each day it has gotten a little worse. (an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>day is Saturday.) There is no scratch or pimple and I was not hit. The inner corner swollen spot is tender an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>uch and sometimes itchy. Hot wet cloth compresses help for a few hours. From what I have read, I think it is a stye.
233488_tn?1310696703 The medication an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>ten stings when therapy is begun--it usually an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>getan>s better by week three or your Ophthalmologist (EyeMD) can prescribe a mild steroid drop for a couple an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> weeks. Improvement an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>ten continues for up an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> 12 months. If you have tried te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct plugs you should have had all for tear duct openings (puncta) plugged with a permanent plus (not a disolving one).

Avatar_m_tn My cat doesn’t have any other medical problems, no fever and is eating and acting fine. She has always had a blocked te<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r duct in this eye all her life. It has always been a weeping eye, but it has never been infected or swelled. This first started out as what seemed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> be a cold as I heard some noisy breathing from her. Then the third eyelid san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ed up in one eye. Then it started an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> some goop in it.
