I am beside myself in frustration. I have been going to eye specialist after eye specialist. They have prescribed everything from artifdicial tears to antibiotics.They have tried to see if I have a duct blockage and even after seeing that I don't they still proceeded to open my duct. I have had drains put in my nose and my eyelids operated on and nothing has helped. I recently had cataract operations and my eyes are worse. Please help me.:mad:

  • When do you get the watery eye. I've had similar work as you to discover the cause of my eye problem. My last diagnosis was -trigeminal neuralgia -caused by a dental problem. I'm still looking for an effective treatment for the problem. I've had 3 MRIs and two CT scans after visiting 2 neurologists, 3 ents, and several other specialists to help with the problem.

  • I don't know that these diagnoses exist, but they certainly should. I have suffered for years with excessive tearing, a runny nose, and stuffed sinuses only after playing video games. More specifically, video games with a lot of action taking place. Simple games with very little graphic intensity do not cause the same problems. I also notice that using either my computers or sometimes watching my TV cause the same problems. All of these are flat screened monitors. I do not have the same problem when watching TV on a CRT (cathode ray tube) TV. I do experience the same when playing the action filled video games regardless of the TV type. There is an actual condition called Nintendo Thumb which was coined way back in the early Nintendo days. To recognize that the thumb condition was directly related to video game play made sense. So too, these other problems I experience must surely be recognized. Early video games had very poor graphics, but today's games are very raphically intense. Many people complain of headaches from trying to keep up with the action on the screen. So now I present for your consideration Sonyocculitis and Sonyrhinitis. I suppose you could replace the word Sony as a root by using the appropriate platform name, but I play on a PS3, so using Sony seems appropriate. Occulitis refers to the root Occular (eye) and -itis to inflammation, hence occulitis. In the case of the rhinitis, Rhino is the root pertaining to the nose and again -itis referring to inflammation. I am able to walk away from the video games and after a while the tearing and the stuffy nose clear up. Once I return to playing the video games it starts right back up. So you are asking, "Why do you continue to play if you know this is going to happen"? Well, I consider it to be a necessary evil. I am physically handicapped and have a grat deal of time to do nothing. I have TV, my computer, and video games to fill my day. Besides those distractions, I have little of anything else to do in order to keep mysel from going completely stir crazy. So even though I realize I am going to suffer from very watery eyes, nasal congestion, and a freely runing nose, I play video games. I have heard plenty of, "if it hurts to poke your eye, stop poking it." as a reasoning to stop playing, but as I said, it is a necessary evil. I too have gone to a few eye doctors, including specialists. I've had my tear ducts blown out, water forced through them, and a few other probable tests and treatments. All of these have been to no avail. I have been sent to allergists after the eye doctors decided it wasn't something they could fix. The allergists weren't able to do anything either. When you get to this point, everybody just throws their hands up and says there's nothing else that can be done. If there is anyone out there considering a study of such a condition, remember that I have nothing but time on my hands and I would certainly be available for testing. I'd love to be able to enjoy a video game wihtout suffering. I'm going to leave this discussion now as I have an unfinished game of "Army of Two" waiting for me. Besides, in the tme this took to write, my eyes have cleared up enough for me to go a few more levels.
