Crystal tears from eyes of 22 y/o female
Doctors are investigating the strange case of a woman who cries 'crystal tears.'

Satenik Kazaryan, 22, from Spandaryan village in Armenia, weeps up to 50 jagged-edged tears each day - and she says her condition is agony and has made her life 'hell.'

'I was at the dentist, and it seemed dust got into my eyes,' she said.

'It hurt me. I went to the ophthalmologist, and a few crystals were taken out of my eyes.

One medic even told her to leave, believing she was faking her condition - but now it is accepted the crystal tears are natural, said her mother-in-law Zemfira Mikaelyan.

Specialists have sent the crystals for analysis but so far there is no diagnosis.

Armenian deputy health minister Oganes Arutyunyan said the woman’s case is being studied.

'We plan one more meeting with Satenik, aiming to gather more information, and then we will try to figure out what is going on with the patient,' she said.

Russian ophthalmologist Tatyana Shilova told REN TV channel that the condition is very unusual but not unique.

'Such a pathology rarely happens, so doctors may have difficulty identifying the causes,' she said.

In certain situations - genetic or inflammatory diseases of the eye, but also of the body as a whole - changes in the composition (of tears) can occur.

'In a tear, there are proteins, fats, micro-elements, it has a certain ionic composition.'
