Every morning I am OK at first. Then, about the time I am ready to leave the house the water works come on in my eyes. Then, the bottom lids turn blood red. I have seen two eye doctors as well as my primary. They have give me prescription antibiotic eyedrops and suggested that I use an eyelid scrub (OTC). My eyes will clear up in the evenings. They flare up in retail stores and on the cruise ship. I feel like it's an environmental allergy but I don't know what. Should I live with it of go see an allergist? I look like I have been drinking in a smoky bar (which I do not!). My eyes burn and tire with reading. I had my eyes checked and have a new prescription in my reading glasses. My vision is fine. I had Lasik surgery about 10 years ago. I think this problem started after that. I use dry eye drops about every 2 hours and also a gel at night.
