No: Common to have some eye irritation that could present as eye redness. However, if you are having tears that fall down your face, I would see your surgeon to ensure your tear duct isn't blocked from some packing placed during surgery.

Yes: The sinuses are located close to the eyes and it is not uncommon to have some mild ocular symptoms following this surgery.

Ask your surgeon : The ethmoid sinus is next to the tear drain, so swelling could cause this. Ask your surgeon!
