Does CF affect tears?

So does CF affect your tears. If I cry in a sad movie, then the next day my eye lids are swollen and I have hard crust on my eye lashes. Sometimes my eyes burn a little if I cry. Anyone else have this and is there anything to do about it? It is embarrassing.

Maybe you were visited by the Sand Man or Sad Man if you prefer. Yes CF tears are different. It's salt and your mucus or tear ducts are dehydrated and spent. If it presents a problem, buy some eye lid washettes. It contains soap and emollients that is formulated for the delicate eyelids and their specific dirt, oils and salts.
