For the past 5+ years my left eye has been tearing excessively. I have gone to three different eye doctors who have performed a number of tests including a "tear production test" (to see if I am producing enough/or too many tears). They also tested my tear ducts to see if there was a blockage of sorts. All tests came back fine, yet I still suffer from this extremely annoying tearing. I have tried artificial tears, antibiotics, eye drops and topical solutions of all sorts and still no relief. Is there anyone out there who may have (or currently experiences) these symptoms and, if so, can you offer any solutions? Any help you can give would be GREATLY appreciated.

I took come chinese herbs for a few weeks and problem resolved, along with migraine headaches as well. You might want to seek out someone of this specialty to help you. Good luck!
