But if there's running why the drops? And how long has this been going on Emily?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

my doctor said the drops will help but there not what do I do

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Then obviously the drops are not appropriate since they're for dry eyes, not running eyes. This sounds like a viral conjunctivitis and for that you need anti-viral eye drops by prescription. Your doctor needs to know that the present drops aren't helping and that he needs to consider a viral conjunctivitis

Just tell him that your eyes are still watering and the drops aren't helpful and you checked your symptoms on the internet and you were wondering if it was a viral infection
