Hello doctor,

My eyes get watery when I talk to people or when I am nervous. Why is that happening?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Our autonomic nervous system also controls lacrimation or tearing and for some emotional changes can activate the autonomous system and hence tearing. There is no specific medication for the same. But you can try using mild anti-allergens like Olopatadine or Naphazoline or Ketorolac to reduce any co-existing eye allergies and reflex lacrimation. Also, look out for nasi lacrimal duct obstruction.
