Weeping Eye Lids

For some time I have had this problem.  My eyelids stay "wet" - they run, weep, leak - whatever you want to call it.  I have been to an opthamologist several times and have been diagnosed with dry eye for which I use Restasis.  This does not help the lids.  I also have cronic (chronic) postnasal drip and a wet cough.  I have gone through a battery of allergy tests that showed nothing. This week the allergist sent me for a MRI of my sinuses and a chest X-ray.  Both were clear.  I am at whit's end - the allergist doesn't really know where to turn.  Has anyone experienced anything like this?  Any leads would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Use the search feature and read about "dry eyes" and also "blepharitis"  try warm compresses, lid cleaning with occusoft eyelid foam cleaners. Ask your Eye MD about a trial of Azasite eye drops at bedtime for 2-3 weeks.
