Eye tearing

I am a 73 yr old male, generally good health, but, three years ago I had cataract surgery and eye lid shortened. Ever since my eyes have teared, especially the right eye. The last two time I have had a virus it has settled in my eyes with matting.
I have been to my personal doctor, an eye doctor, two eye surgerns, and an eye, ear, nose specialist. They did find my right eye tear plugged, and put in a tempory tube. The tube needs to be removed but the matting will not clear up enough for them to take it out, and now its is plugged. My personal doctor has prescribed an antibiotic which helped with infection and matting, but its comes back when I finished with the antibiotic.
My doctors are now puzzled and I'm not sure what my next step should be. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jerry73
