Do you have watery eyes? Looks like you are crying all the time, eyes are sore, red, irritated. Doctors tell you to use more eye drops, your eyes are getting worse.
Watery eyes is tear over production or poor drainage of the tear duct.
Watery eye is the result of irritation or inflammation in or around your eye that causes your eye to increase tear production. One or both of your eyes may become watery. Tears make sure that debris, bacteria are cleared out as to not cause infections.
Watery eye is usually caused by irritation (e.g dry eyes, cornea abrasion) or eye infection , injury to the eye, or a common cold. Other symptoms of eye irritation, including itching, redness, a gritty feeling, and swelling of the eyelids, often happens in watery eyes.
Watery Eyes Causes
Tears are necessary for the normal lubrication of the eye and to wash away particles and foreign bodies.
- Dry Eyes- A major cause of watery eyes. Dry eye causes the eyes to become uncomfortable, which stimulates the body to produce Reflex Tear the tear that is you cry with in an attempt to lubricate your eyes. Reflex tear is of poor quality and tend to wash away the natural lubricants that your eyes produce, making your eyes drier and drier. Key reason is, your lacrimal gland which normally produce tears is not functioning properly. In order to stop tear over production, you need to get the lacrimal and meibomian glands both to secrete balanced tears. TheraLife Eye can help you balance the normal cell functions of your tear secretion glands and stop tear over production. It is important that you test for dry eyes when you have watery eyes.
- Allergy to mold and dust.
- Blepharitis- read more about how TheraLife eye can help with Blepharitis and Watery Eyes both.
- Blockage of the tear duct
- Aging is a major cause of water dry eyes because dry eye is a natural process of aging.
In order to stop tear over production, you need to get the lacrimal and meibomian glands both to secrete balanced tears. TheraLife Eye can help you balance the normal cell functions of your tear secretion glands and stop tear over production. It is important that you test for dry eyes when you have watery eyes.
Watery Eyes Symptoms:

TheraLife Can Help
Consider the cause of the tearing. If the eyes feel dry and burn and then begin to tear, artificial tears make eyes even drier. However, if watery eyes persist, frequent use of eye drops are no longer effective. Try TheraLife Eye which normalize both the lacrimal and meibomian gland functions intra-cellularly.
If the eyes are itchy and uncomfortable, consider allergy as a cause. Over-the-counter antihistamines can be useful. A mucous discharge from the eyes or red eyes may indicate a blocked tear duct or eyelid problem.
