Do I have an eye condition?

Hello, im a teenager and I have ambitions of becoming a surgeon in the future however i have a problem, my eyes tear up frequently for no reason, which means i have to physically wipe the tears to be able to see again, it happens even more if i concentrate on something with my eyes, like when reading a book.

other info:
not an allergic thing, though i also have hay fever, this happens all year round even when on anti-histamines
i am also short sighted and wear glasses

You need to see an Eye MD. Tell him/her the problem. Ask about a blocked tear duct.
