Eyewash: For watery eye discharge, caused by environmental irritants, mild viral infections, trauma and allergies, frequent irrigation with refrigerator-cooled eyewash or collyrium helps. Avoid rubbing your eyes as this always makes it worse. Dry your eyes with a Kleenex or eye pad. If it doesn't respond in a few days (less than or equal to 4), see your eye doctor.
