Assessment and treatment for watery and dry eyes is available privately within the calming, unique and quality clinical environment at The Edinburgh Clinic.
Eyes may water either because of too much tear secretion – caused by irritation of the eye, Blepharitis or allergy – or because of a blockage in the tear drainage system. Symptoms of watery eyes include blurred vision, irritation of the skin around the eye and infection of the tear drainage system. It can sometimes prevent people from wearing make-up and potentially causes embarrassment.
Treatment for watery eyes depends on the severity of the condition. Surgery may be recommended to unblock the tear duct. If surgery is recommended, this can be carried out in our on-site day-case operating theatre at The Edinburgh Clinic.
