Default User Photo

had eye lid surgery 4 weeks ago and my left eye is very watery which makes my left nostril run all the time.

It feels strange all the time and has a watery substance like a thick clear jel in it. It aches sometimes and both of my eyes have bags under them each morn. even though the surgery did surgery under the eyes to get rid of the bags.
Is this normal or is something going on in my left eye. i see ok, but I am worried.

Agree with the previous comment. You need to be examined. (more)

Best to see your surgeon ASAP. Sounds like a tear duct issue to me. (more)

It is difficult to know what the problem without examination. It could be just healing or it could be something more serious. See an ophthalmologist or oculoplastic specialist. (more)
