Watering eyes is when the eyes water and overflow onto the face.

One of the major causes of watering eyes is chronic dry eyes. TheraLife Eye has a powerful watery eyes treatment protocol to help stop tear overproduction. Check out our entire product line of natural products.  

 Causes of Watery Dry Eyes

There are many causes of watery eyes:

  • Allergic Conjunctivitis –allergic reaction to irritants such as pollen that cause the eyes to become red, itchy, and watery.
  • Conjunctivitis – Also known as “pink eye,” this Is a highly contagious infection causing the eye to become inflamed.
  • Common Cold – A viral infection that results in sneezing, runny nose, headache, and watery eyes.
  • Scleritis – A disorder of the eye where the sclera becomes intensely red and inflamed, autoimmune.
  • External Eyelid Stye – Seen as an infection of the meibomian oil glands located on the eyelid. 
  • Allergic Rhinitis – Also known as hay fever. A common condition where the body reacts to specific allergens with sneezing and watery, itchy eyes.
  • Chalazion – When one of the oil glands of the upper eyelid becomes blocked and irritated. The eyes will start to be watery.
  • Blepharitis – If the eyelash follicles become inflamed, the eyes may water to clear out the pollutants from the area.

All of these conditions can lead to dry eye disease.

Dry Eye and Watery Eyes  

Eye drops don’t work for watery eyes.

It seems contradictory, but a major cause of watery eyes is dry eyes when dry eyes cause the lacrimal glands to produce fewer tears, resulting in inflammation. 

Prolonged dry eyes not being treated leads to the production of crying tears (reflux tears), controlled by the autonomous system in the brain. The reflux tears are of poor quality, evaporates too quickly, and wash away the lubricants that protect the eyes. Watery eyes lead to dry, irritated eyes that create the vicious cycle of more tear production.  

Your tear ducts that drain tears away can be blocked – a condition known as lacrimal stenosis. The tear duct can become blocked after nose surgery or trauma.

Older adults who have drooping eyelids due to aging may also develop dry eyes and excessive watery eyes. 

The eyelids sagging is called Ectropion. Eyes may become dry, sore, red, or burning as a result.

Watery Eyes Symptoms

Dry eyes cause excess tear production. The eyes are dry and uncomfortable, raw, blurry vision, foreign body sensation, light sensitivity, and more. Excessive tearing can wash away the vital oils needed to protect the eyes from airborne irritants. Allergies cause itchy and swollen eyes, which can also lead to dry eyes.
