You sound like you are experiencing post-blepharoplasty dry eye.
I recommend that you get assessed by a cornea or oculoplastic surgery specialist. They can manage dry eye syndrome following aggressive eyelid surgery. Many of your symptoms sound consistent with dry eye. There are many options for this that can improve your symptoms.
