    What does the eye itself look like - red and inflammed or clear and healthy. Do you have a head bale that you can put him into and have an inspection of the lids. There are many reasons as to why this might be happening - wind and dust, something embedded in the lids or eye, infection. If nothing seems obvious, give your vet a ring.

    Cheers,
