I figured out that I have a blocked tear duct. Is there anything I can do without a doctor?

In brief: A common sign

Of this is excessive tearing, called "epiphora".
You should not rub your eye, but the tear ducts drain into the nose, and the inner aspect of the eye near the nose can be massaged, and sometimes it clears...Do not wait too long without seeing an eye doctor to make the proper diagnosis and treatment.
