That's what I thought my problem was too. Went to the doc, she said that's dry eye! I said wait, they keep tearing up, especially in the wind. Yep, that's dry eye. I figured it was a plugged tearduct. Nope, they both worked fine. It's dry eye. If I understood correctly, your eye isn't producing enough oil, so it dries and calls for more tears? I dont know. She gave me some eye drops that are pretty helpful (systane). And weird, it's just my left eye. I'll see her again later this month.
