Ask a doctor

Since surgery of upper & lower lid, Sept 2010 I have suffered intense sensitivity to the light, especially when I first wake up.

 Also, at night when I close my eyes to sleep my right eye waters non stop, its as if I turn on a faucet as I close my eyes. Its extremely uncomfortable and prevents me from getting the sleep I need. I know I should have sought the help of a doctor but I have had the worse luck in finding a physician worth consulting.
I live in So. East Florida

Upper and Lower Eye Lid Surgery?

 You should consider asking your Eyelid Surgeon to recommend an eye doctor for you to have a thorough eye exam.  You may have exposure issues/irritation related to the upper eyelid surgery.

Dry eyes after blepharoplasty

Your symptoms sound like what happens from dry eyes. This could be due to lack of complete eyelid closure, which would be worse at night!  See an oculoplastic specialist for evaluation.

Eye sensitivity and watering after blepharoplasty

 I think you need a proper evaluation to determine what is wrong.  Chemosis may cause some of these symptoms due to dry eye as well.  Good luck.
