    Does anyone else get teary eyed when smoking? I only smoke latakia blends, so it either is or isn't the tobacco. Just wondering if others have the same problem and do drops or something.

    I smoke a lot of short pipes and occasionally the smoke bothers my eyes. I use eye drops occasionally.

    I will sometimes get watery eyes when smoking a bent. It's inevitable, but some eyes are more sensitive than others in this respect.

    My eyes will water a little bit if the smoke is particularly enjoyable and the bowl is almost done.

    Not from pipe smoking, but pollen in the air. Drip time!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I get red swollen eyes when setting in a lounge with too many other smokers, but not from just smoking my own pipe. Our pipe club's success with gaining more and more members is great, but as it gets larger and larger, I can barely stand to go, and Briary Pipe events are great in getting to meet pipemakers and tobacconists, but with everyone smoking, I can only stay inside for a few minutes at a time.

    Eyedrops have always been like throwing gasoline on a fire for me. They always make it worse.

    Minimal airflow around always leads me to watery/irritated eyeballs.

    In general from my own pipe, no. A particular bent pipe likes to direct the smoke toward my eyes, and it can happen, especially smoking in the car with the windows up.

    It rarely happens when I'm smoking a pipe, but almost always happens when I smoke a cigar.

    It happens to me every now and then, usually when I am smoking in a closed in area and there is poor ventilation.

    Same as above. My eyes turn red in a smoky room or tent, but not when smoking by myself.

    haha, I'm so grateful that it's not just me. I've given up smoking my bent billiard because the smoke seems to go straight into my eyes no matter where I sit or how I hold the pipe. My author, straight billiard, and Rossi 8673 do just fine and give me no smokey-eye problems at all!

    Yes...the key is the amount of eye shadow you use, and how to fade it out to the edges.......Oh wait... I mean...no I typically don't have problems with my eyes watering.

    Sometimes it happens. I don't usually clench my pipe in my jaw, for this reason & others. I also tend to stay away from nose warmers now, because a longer stem keeps the smoke out of my eyes more effectively.

    Smoke outdoors, and face downwind!

    So I started using this morning and night and it has made a huge difference. Looking forward to trying it at the next pipe club. Unfortunately, this pesky holiday, Valentine's Day, falls on it and club day was pushed out a few days.

    BTW guy, this is your friendly reminder: flowers, dinner reservations and cards and cheaper and more available now than next week. Get on it.
