: : : How is your son's eye doing? When you said he had a stye, I thought it had been confirmed that he had a stye. If he in fact has a blocked tear duct, he should see an opthalmologist and minor surgery can be done to correct this.
: : I was told every time he crys it gets blocked and it puff's right out into the sty. I hate them, but when i went to go see his eye doctor(his other one) she said it didn't look like a sty at all that he might be allrigic to somehting in the house like the dogs cause she asked if we ahd any dogs. So i ahve appoiment dec 1 to see his eye doctor up here cause he is closer to him then she is. So thats all for now.
: I wish you could put a picture on here. It sounds like they don't know. Would you be able to see another ophthalmologist in your area that he has not already seen for another opinion? If the duct gets blocked when he cries, then it does sound like a blocked tear duct and not allergies but it is hard to really tell without looking at it. I would take him to another doctor.
: Good luck and keep me updated.
I do have a picture of it but i think it might only be when he had the surgry, but alest you can see how big the sty is. Yea one doctor said it was a blocked tear duct, then the other said she don't know if its a sty or he is allric to somehting. Would you like to see a picture? Would you know what it could be if you say it?
