WATERY EYES

Health Tip: What's Behind My Watery Eyes?

Some common triggers       By Diana Kohnle                 Wednesday, November 17, 2010 
The Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center says these common airborne particles can trigger those annoying symptoms:
  • Dust.
  • Dander from pets and other animals.
  • Fungi spores.
  • Pollen.
  • Non-allergenic irritants, such as air pollution and tobacco smoke.

Watery eyes also occur when your body makes more tears than you lose through evaporation or drainage. Watery eyes or excess tearing may happen naturally in response to emotions or to cold, windy weather. Otherwise, persistent watery eyes can have many causes, including allergies and infections like those indicated above.  A blocked tear duct is a common cause of watery eyes. Complications from dry eyes or eye irritation can trigger the release of a large amount of tears in an attempt to lubricate your eyes. The excess tears overwhelm the drainage system, causing watery eyes.                          If watery eyes don't resolve on their own, an eye doctor can determine and treat the cause.
