 Causes of Watery Dry Eyes

One of the primary causes of watery eyes is allergy. Especially if it is seasonal. Amongst the many causes include:

  • Blepharitis – Inflammation of the eyelids where eyelash follicles become inflamed, the eyes water to clear the pollutants.
  • Allergic Conjunctivitis–Allergic reaction to allergens such as pollen, dust, mites that cause the eyes to become red, itchy, and watery.
  • Conjunctivitis 
  • “pink eye” Conjunctivitis is a highly contagious infection that causes the eyes to water and become red.
  • Common Cold – A virus that usually causes sneezing, runny nose, headache, and watery eyes.
  • Scleritis– A disorder of the eye where the sclera becomes red and inflamed, and watery. Scleritis is an autoimmune disease.
  • Stye or chalazion- a bump on the eyelid near the edge of the eyelid. It can be painful and result in watery eyes.
  • Allergic Rhinitis (Nose) –Hay fever – the body reacts to allergens that make you sneeze with watery, itchy eyes.

All of these conditions can lead to dry eye syndrome.

Purpose of eyes watering.

Tears wash away debris from your eyes every time you blink. Irritants cause tear glands to produce excess tears to wash them away. At the same time, it washes away the vital oils and mucous that protect the eyes. Too much tear can lead to dry, irritated eyes that create the vicious cycle of more tear production.

If the ducts that drain tears away become blocked, a condition known as lacrimal stenosis may be present. The tear overflow onto the face. This duct may become blocked after nose surgery or trauma.

Senior adults who have drooping eyelids develop dry eye syndrome and excessive watering eyes. Ectropion is a condition that is from sagging eyelids. Sagging eyelids allow tears to evaporate too quickly. Eyes may become dry, sore, red, or burning as a result.

Why Dry Eyes cause Watery Eyes

Chronic dry eyes cause reduced tear production plus a lot of inflammation. The irritation caused by dry eyes initiates this vicious cycle of water eyes. The tear in this type of watery eyes is called “Reflex Tears.” Reflex tears are autonomous Eye drops don’t work for watery, dry eyes. The only way to stop tear production is to treat the underlying dry eyes. The watery eyes will naturally cease.

Here is a story from one of our customers

Watery, Dry Eyes Relieved by TheraLife Eye- Australia

I can only say it was a stroke of good fortune to have found your product. Finally, I can live each day without itchy, red, watery eyes. I know when I need more as my right eye starts to feel uncomfortable, as if there is grit in it or I don’t focus. But as soon as I up my TheraLife Eye capsules (mainly two tablets/day), the discomfort dissipates, and I’m fine. 

I first bought TheraLife to aid my dog and her dry eyes. It was only when a friend was visiting. I complained how my eyes were constantly watering, itchy and I was rubbing them so often. She told me I had dry eyes, which seemed strange because my eyes are watery. So I thought I would take the TheraLife Eye capsules, which I was using for my dog, and wow, what a difference. I took TheraLife Eye initially at eight capsules per day for two months. Now, these capsules are a permanent part of my day, and I am so grateful.

Some days I have to increase my TheraLife Eye dosage because of frequent travels. Or when the weather gets hotter and drier, as it does in Victoria, Australia. But it only takes a couple of days of double dosage to get relief when I return to 2 capsules/ day to maintain the excellent health of my eyes. I find I can take one capsule at a time with food. Otherwise, they can make me feel a little nauseous. But that is not a problem and well worth it.

Once again, my sincere thanks to you all and your emails keeping me up to date with all the information and support.

May 2011 is a wonderfully successful year for you all.

Kindest regards,

K.M. Victoria, Australia
