What do I do about an eye condition of discomfort, excessive tearing, and a feeling of water behind the eye? Steroids did not work.

Suddenly had a very "red" eye walking into a store on Jan. 13. Instantly red. Came down w/ flu 2 days later. Flu passed in 4 wk but eye problems continued. Redness, itching, pain but that subsided. Now, 12 wk later, excessive tearing, feeling of 'pressure', watery, swollen all the time, especially after sleeping. So discomforting. Steroids prescribed did not work. Any ideas? Very concerned. Thank you.
