My left eye keeps watering. Is there any treatment apart from surgery?

My left eye is constantly watering. There is no pain or discomfort, but the watering is persistent. Is there a way to treat my condition other than a surgery?

Investigations under a specialist ENT doctor will diagnose your problem and advise for a treatment.
Good day.

If only one eye is affected, it most likely is related to a blocked lacrimal duct and that would normally require surgery. However, it is critically important to consult with an Ophthalmologist/eye surgeon about this matter before using any remedy or deciding on any treatment.
You can ask an ophthalmologist, which would be more appropriate.
There is a number of things you can do to help when a eye or both eyes watering. The one thing you do not want to do is buy a lot of over-the-counter drugs. If you do not do the right thing, you can hurt your eyesight. If you have not seen a eye doctor, you need to do that before you try to treat your problem yourself. You may only have an infection that can be taken care of with a Rx from your doctor, not your friend who would love to be a doctor. Your eyes are only given out one set for life.
If you have ever had Bell's palsy, the condition could be permanent.

Have you seen an ophthamologist to be sure your tear duct isn't blocked?

Does it occur only during eating? (Bogorad's Syndrome) Have you ever had surgery behind your ear?
