It is time to see an ophthalmologist. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. Wish you good health!

Please see an ophthalmolgist, it is possible that your tear drainage system is blocked

I too urge a visit to an ophthalmologist, and do also wonder about a tear duct issue.
