Q.

Tearing Eye

Doc my 8month old has been having this teary-eyed problem for the last 2 months now.

its not constant - but its there about 3 - 4 days out of the week.

the pead - gave me eye drop and ointment at different times.

I want to know how long should I be using the drops or ointment before taking him back again or should I consider a ETN?

He appears to have blocked tear ducts and should be seen by a paediatric eye specialist.

The eye specialist is Dr. Ram, he's in Lenasia and you can contact him on 011 854-4886/1865. He's very good.

Hi Coco

My baby had this teary eye since birth and I was prescribed an ointment(from the clinic) which didnt work, i took him to an eye specialist last week and was told that I should have brought him earlier. Won't go into detail about the diagnosis but I suggest you get your baba to an eye specialist rather.
