Watering From Eyes

Usually, tears are discharged through the tear ducts and then evaporate, but due to some reasons, overproduction of tears causes watering from eyes. Tears help lubricate the eyes and wash away foreign particles and dust. The causes of watery eyes are eye strain, windy climate, sun exposure, sinus problems, allergy, blepharitis, ingrown eyelash, conjunctivitis, blocked tear ducts, eye injury, etc.
