Hi Anita .. Thank you for the question given.

Many complaints of itching, watery eyes, and discharge in the eyes are caused by an infection of the conjunctiva or in medical language it is called conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis can be caused by: a bacterial infection, a virus, or an allergy. The common symptom is serign tears due to more productive glands caused by inflammation, becoming more sensitive to light, reddish eyes due to dilated blood vessels. If conjunctivitis is caused by bacteria, it is characterized by an increase in the production of thick eye discharge and it is difficult to open your eyes when you wake up. Meanwhile, those that are caused by allergies can be accompanied by morning sneezing, nasal congestion, and itching.

Other causes of watery eyes can be due to eye fatigue, exposure to smoke, wind, or excess light; Bell's palsy, inflammation of the eyelids.

If the complaints experienced by your mother have been going on for a long time and have not improved, accompanied by visual disturbances, it is better to see an eye doctor directly to get an examination and can also be assessed for visual acuity. So that doctors can provide appropriate treatment. Meanwhile what can be done is:

Avoid using eye drops without a doctor's advice Avoid rubbing your eyes Wash your hands before and after handling your eyes Compress your eyes with warm water to help remove dense eye debris Use glasses to avoid exposure to dust, smoke, or excessive light.
