Watering Sore Eye

My left eye has been watering alot, with sharp pain every so often and it's quite often swollen when I wake up in the morning. The opticians have said its dry eye. Anyway, having googled this, it seems that it is one of the symptons of having PCOS. Yet another one! Anyone else have this problem or even heard about it?

Many Thanks

I get this too!!!!
It's such a pain (literally) and I can't wear eye make up as I don't know when my eyes might start streaming and swelling. Didn't know what it was until I went to the opticians recently for contact lenses and she diagnosed 'dry eye syndrome'. I had never heard of this before. She was looking at my notes and made the connection between having PCOS and dry eye as it can be caused by hormone imbalance. Not sure that there is much that can be done for it. Just another symptom of PCOS which we have to live with :(
Would be good to know if anyone has any remedies for this.
