It would be advisable to see an Opthamologist. Hopefully you had a baseline eye exam prior to treatment. If it was me, I would make an urgent appt to see that Opthamologist ASAP. If you have no Opthamologist, then it would be advisable to get one, either by choosing one yourself or getting a referral if you have to do it that way.

The medications can cause eye problems, some of them severe and some of them not severe. The medications also dry out the eyes and mucous membranes and that could be causing the burning. However, you need to see an Opthamologist ASAP and have an exam and get appropriate treatment. When you call, tel them that you are on Hep C treatment and need to see someone ASAP to be sire nothing serious is happening.

Are you using any artificial tears?  Dr had me start using "Blink" drops to increase the lubrication in the eyes. I never had an issue with dry eyes UNTIL starting tx

PEGASYS may cause eye problems that may lead to vision loss or blindnessg treatment with riba/pegasys

  I would suggest keeping it moist(with eye drops) until you can get in to see the opthalmologist.  Having dry eyes can actually cause more damage.

I'm curious about your eye. Sometimes watering can be a sign of dry eye. I had a pain in my right eye, almost like a sty was starting. But I had to blow that pain off for my Horrible rash I have on my arms. Had to get to derm before eye ball Dr. Lol!! Try these drops__Similasan. There homeopathic so use often as needed. They dont have preservatives. I'm going to try to get to eye Dr next week. Keep us posted.

i had severe dry eyes during treatment. I was advised by my DR. before treatment to have eye exam. I did then the eye Dr told me to come back in 3 months but if I had problem before come back sooner . I did and  I had the dry eyes he gave me drops .  After treatment I saw him again he gave me Restases  to help and it does.
the treatment is hard on some of us so please check with your dr.
Good luck.
