Georgian term or phrase: დაწყლიანებული
One more question. What kind of eyes are დაწყლიანებული თვალები (in this case, ლოთობისგან დაწყლიანებული). It looks like "festering", "ulcerated", or "infected", but I think that may be a bit strong. Would "watery" or "rheumy" be better?

English translation:watery
Explanation:
I think "watery" is a good translation, but it might be helpful to have a bit more context. "Watery" might also be "teary."

"Rheumy" could also be "mucousy" or "full of mucous."

Asker: Thanks! Of course the root of the word is წყალი, right? Completely missed that...
